May 2012, members of HIVE and various UK instructors traveled to Shanghai, China to participate in an Appalachian Symposium with members of Shanghai University.
While China is famous for its booming metropolises of Shanghai and Beijing, many people still live in rural communities. A&S Hive members Dana Rogers and Cheyenne Hohman traveled to Yiwen Chen's hometown in Yongja, China.

A&S Hive members Cheyenne Hohman and Dana Rogers visited Yiwen Chen's home in Yongja, Wenzhou. Wenzhou was a prosperous foreign treaty port, which remains well-preserved today. It is situated in a mountainous region and, as a result, has been isolated for most of its history from the rest of the country, making the local culture and language very distinct not only from the rest of China but from neighboring areas as well.
