Reimagining folk and traditional arts in New York City 


At Mencius Society For The Arts, we believe art is a universal language that transcends the barriers of language and culture.

We are a society based in the heart of the Lower Eastside and Chinatown in New York City, passionately dedicated to preserving and promoting traditional Chinese arts, including music, Cantonese culture, Cantonese Opera, and Cantonese Folk Arts.

Our society is a vibrant hub of creativity, offering a unique space for artists, students, and lovers of art to come together, learn, share, and celebrate the richness of Chinese culture through various art forms, including:
