Annual Community Service Day
 
Every year we try to give back with concrete action -- village clean up and donation of our gross proceeds of the lunch service during 12:00-15:30 that day for the elderly in Beigou Village. Participation by companies and organizations is welcome. Please contact info@theschoolhouseatmutianyu.com to learn how your team can help.
 
 
 
 
Readings in the Garden
 
Tautvile Daugelaite is the resident artist of Brickyard this June. She is a Lithuanian writer living and studying in Beijing. She and her writer friends made a literary event reading their essays and poems and shared illustrations in a zine to guest participants at the Great Wall terrace on a hot but breezy afternoon (with plenty of cold beer!).
