The main gallery is 150 metres sq and houses Chinese Arts Centre's curated exhibitions and takes in tours from the national and international scene.

The new building offers several ‘physical' facilities for artists' use. The project space of 50 sq. metres will be a studio for resident artists who are taking part in Chinese Art Centre's Breathe residency programme and a space for open studios. We also offer surgeries, advice and consultation services for artists as well as providing administrative support and IT facilities in a purpose built study/resources space.

To compliment our hugely successful artist-lead school workshops and outreach programme, the education suite has the very latest IT facilities available to enhance learning. This will mean that Chinese Arts Centre will continue to be at the forefront of disseminating information about Chinese creativity, from the traditional through to the contemporary. The education suite is also available for conference hire.

Harmonious Society features a wide range of work, including painting, audio and video art, large and small scale installations and performance pieces. From a mesmerising artificial sun, to a deconstructed Tianamen square, from immersive tunnels to breathing books, Harmonious Society showcases unique and unforgettable artwork, created in response to the ATM14 theme of Conflict and Compassion. The majority of works are site-specific, based on artists’ recent visits to Manchester and examine the current era of unprecidented social, ideological and cultural transformation.
