RideauStone Arts Centre was formally established earlier this year (2016) with the goal of promoting an exchange of culture and performances between Canada and China. RideauStone Arts Centre works closely with initiatives such as Sister Cities/Twin Cities to create and strengthen relations between Canada and China. A strong belief in bridging the culture and music of the people of Canada and China steers the institutional direction of the Arts Centre.

RideauStone Arts Centre is led by CEO Peng (Patrick) Lin. Mr. Lin has a wealth of international experience, having worked in Foreign Affairs in China as well as the Beijing Municipal Government. Mr. Lin went on to work with Siemens China Headquarters, as well as China Netcom and other large multinational and domestic enterprises. Now living in Canada, Mr. Lin is committed to promoting the exchange of music and art between China and Canada.
