On 18 September, to celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival and also as a part of current exhibition Spring Fantasy 2021: A Healing Journey Through Mountains and Waters, the Center invited 10 kids from Den Haag and the vicinity to participate in “Mid-Autumn Workshop for Kids: The legend of The Moon Rabbit”, which was taught by exhibition co-curator Yu Minhong and professional children's illustrator Ma Siyuan. With the traditional Chinese story "The Legend of The Moon Rabbit" as the theme, the children created their own full moon and moon rabbit, experiencing the fun of creative ink painting.

The Chinese are fastidious about their food, and that is displayed to its fullest extent during the traditional Mid-Autumn Festival.
We would like to share some Chinese paintings related with the Mid-Autumn, and we wish you a very special moon-moment with family and loved ones.
The Center has digitally conserved 24 of the works and has launched an 'online gallery'to allow more visitors to enjoy the works remotely.
