On May 31st, Meridian Space teamed up with the Cultural Section of the French Embassy in Beijing to celebrate Children’s Day in advance, with a full day of activities on the theme of children’s books.
• EXHIBITION: Works by renowned Swiss illustrator Anne Crausaz
• WORKSHOP: In the morning, 20 fortunate children were lucky enough to take part in a bilingual (French/Chinese) workshop by Anne Crausaz, who initiated them to the art of illustration and book-making: their combined drawings were turned into a beautiful book, now on display at our space.
• TALK: “What constitutes a good children’s book?” A distinguished panel of guests, including illustrator Xiong Liang, as well as various editors and publishers, gathered to exchange their views regarding this important question. A professional networking event took place thereafter.
