The New Workers Troupe was founded on May 1st 2002. It is initiated by a group of migrant workers themselves. It is a civil organization that serves for public interests through art. The Team members are migrant workers who have certain talents and who are willing to devote their spare time to other workers. The Troupe members have produced various forms of art: songs, talk shows, theatres, dances, etc. The Troupe has left its footprints in a wide range of places including: construction sites, factories, universities, various enterprises, and schools for migrant children and communities where migrant workers reside.
