Beijing Arrivals

'Old Beijing'- People often talk about the city as if it once existed in a pure, untouched version. But in reality Beijing has always been a city shaped by waves of migrants.

It is difficult to find a better example of this than Dashilar, just southwest of the Qianmen Gate. For hundreds of years this area of Beijing was the ever-simmering melting pot of the capital. Dashilar was the place where people would first enter Beijing. Through hard labor, personal relations, money, skills or whatever they brought with them, newcomers would find their way into the urban society.

Beijing Arrivals is a combined Walk and Talk. We will start out in our hutong gallery with a brief introduction to Dashilar, before exploring the different districts of the neighborhood and visiting a couple of families that we have worked with in our ongoing oral history project.
