China at the 2016 Brussels Comic Strip Festival
Invited by visit.brussels, hosted by the Center of International Cultural Exchange and China Cultural Center in Brussels, and jointly organized by Atlas International Cultural Sprl and Beijing Total Vision Culture Spreads Co., LTD, a China booth with diversified activities among which the exhibition “Illustrated concerto between tradition and modernity — Discovering Chinese Manhua”, was held during the 7th Brussels Comic Strip Festival to showcase Chinese comics artworks and industry, to the local and international audience of the Festival. This activity was supported by the Industry Department of Ministry of Culture of the People’s Republic of China and the Cultural Section of Embassy of the People’s Republic of China in the Kingdom of Belgium.
A rich program for exciting discoveries!
During three days – September 2 to 4 – the China booth, located in the International Pavilion of the Festival, took hundreds of visitors on a journey about China comic culture. Exhibitions, signature sessions, live drawings, workshops, movie screenings, and even a lucky draw! The whole program was meant to address the very diversified public of this popular event, including kids and their parents.
The China booth was surely one of the most popular booth in the Pavilion, with dozens of visitors queuing up to get their signed book from the young and talented artist Zao Dao. Her work with Chinese ink and watercolor was indeed very impressive and totally different from classic European comic author.
See you next year for an even more diversified and entertaining program for our China booth!
