For the most part, the Changchun Friends website is not very active and has been superseded by the Tencent "Wechat" app by the local expat community. This website is maintained sporadically, people may still join and membership is still open, but if you are a spammer, stay away. The archived information here is still useful, but some may be out of date. There are plans to make it more useful for static information in the future. If anyone needs information about Changchun or China, you may post a message and it probably will get a response but not immediately.

ARTWORKS - Seeing Changchun through my eyes

For some years now a few people have discussed the idea of holding an Art exhibition organised by the ex expatriate community showcasing the arts of Changchun by both the expatriate and local artists. This has been one of those ongoing discussions which always seem to end up with everyone agreeing that it is a good idea but no-one ever actually taking that first step.

A city of its own: Rare photos capture New York's Chinatown in the early 1980s
