About the tour

Interspersed in the incredible skyscraper clusters of Shanghai, you will find propaganda ever-present. It is one of the few things to remind us that we’re in the most powerful communist country in the world. Propaganda, only footsteps away, remains mysterious and beyond recognition. Some can be touched and heard, some can only be felt. What? How? Why? Who?...

Walk with us, on a journey of discovery, on this Propaganda tour. See hundreds of creative propaganda posters, feel their immeasurable spiritual power, hear about China’s dramatic history of the past several decades, experience how propaganda influences daily life, how it is rooted in China’s education and people’s mindset.

※The tour focuses on culture and history, not political cynicism.
