Give Community Events a Chance

By Jul 28, 2017 Community
This weekend is for the hippies of Shanghai. Free love vibes, body paint, alternative workouts, and art— appreciating it, making it, buying it. On tap, there's the 'Dreamshake' Art Market, which highlights work from young and up-and-coming artists, a food festival from Woodstock of Eating, and art classes at Cook in Shanghai. Oh, and Aerial Yoga for good measure. Details after the jump.


Daily until Jul 30

Dreamshake Art Market

FQ Projects, a contemporary gallery that supports young emerging artists, has got an exhibit called 'Dreamshake' running from July 16 to August 27, that aims to mirror a child's perspective on the world. But just this weekend, the exhibit will have its own inspired art-market, with selected independent designers, along with some talented kid-artists selling their work. There will also be food and drink available for purchase. The pop-up market will be at FQ Projects on both Saturday and Sunday, from 1pm till 8pm. Free admission.

Aerial Yoga Abs Training

XS Yoga - 2/F, Bldg 2, 223 Yanping Lu, near Kangdin...

Aerial Yoga’s been around for a few years but it can add some variation in-between weekend yoga brunches. For the next month, XS Yoga is offering an open class every Sunday from 2-3pm for 120rmb. Aerial Yoga is basically a yoga class where you hang from the ceiling on hammock-like things. It works muscles that get neglected in a typical yoga session, and apparently does wonders for the core. Open sessions at XS will end August 20.

All skill levels are welcome to the class. Happening on Sunday at 10am.
