China Federation of Literary and Art Circles

China Quyi Artists Association



China Quyi Artists Association (CQAA) was founded in July 1949 as Preparatory Committee for China Quyi Reform Association and subsequently China Quyi Research Institute and China Quyi Workers Association. In November 1979, CQAA became its official title.

As a group member of CFLAC, CQAA is a non-governmental organization of professional Quyi artists from all ethnic groups of China. CQAA serves for consolidation, guidance, communication, coordination, service and management, self-discipline and rights protection among Quyi artists, and adheres to the principle of artistic service for the people. 

CQAA practices group membership and individual membership simultaneously. Now there are 36 group members and over 6000 individual members at the state level. Mr. Jiang Kun, the grand master of Xiangsheng (Crosstalk), is now President of CQAA, and 11 vice presidents of CQAA are artists of different types of Chinese Quyi as well. 
In the past nearly 70 years, CQAA has actively organized a large variety of significant events, including Quyi art shows, workshops, art training, overseas art exchanges such as China Quyi Art Festival, Global Showcase of China Quyi Arts, International Humor Arts Week, China Quyi Festival in Paris, and China Quyi Arts Week in Germany. 

The Chinese Quyi Peony Award, a national prize sponsored by CQAA takes place every two years for those Quyi artists who have made progress, breakthrough and great contribution in Quyi arts. The Quyi Magazine sponsored by CQAA is the only national magazine in China on Quyi art. Ever since its founding, CQAA has contributed a lot to the development of Quyi art creation, fostering potential Quyi talents, and promoting exchanges with foreign counterparts.
