The Near West Group seeks to create more harmony between the people of China and the people of the West through Entertainment, Education, and the Arts. We aspire to build a foundation of goodwill and trust through personal relationships forged by meaningful collaboration. We believe that the dynamic between China and the West will have a profound impact on the future of our world, and seek to promote mutual cooperation and understanding.
The Near West Group is an umbrella organization. We develop and support projects that are visionary, groundbreaking, and capable of creating positive relationships. We welcome collaboration with individuals and organizations who share our passion and vision, who would like to be involved in one of our projects, or for whom we can provide a helpful service, connection, or resource. For some of you, this message will resonate deeply, as it has with our core team members. If you are one of these people, we encourage you to join us in turning the Far East into the Near West.
Near West is also a Global Partner of the International Schools Theatre Association (ISTA). We help bring ISTA resources to the local Chinese education sytem.
