The theme of this year’s Xintiandi Festival, which will run from 25th May – 8th June, was chosen before the global crisis created by COVID-19 but is now particularly timely and relevant. For 2020, the Festival will focus on the link between people and how they connect with one another. Designers have been briefed to realise the theme of ‘Together!’ and how communities can interact with each other within a rich and productive dialogue.
