The exhibition is composed of paintings and calligraphy made by Chinese children from 4 to 18 on the theme "Europe in my heart". The artworks have been selected for the 2012 EU-China Youth and Children Fine Arts Exhibition and Competition. This exhibition has been displayed in August 2012 in the China Children's Center in Beijing with the support of the EU Delegation in China. In 2011, a first EU-China Youth and Children Fine Arts Exhibition on the theme "EU in my eyes" was successfully organized by EU Delegation to China and The Hungarian Embassy in China, in the framework of the EU-China Year of Youth.

||SOUNDBITE (in English) by Androulla Vassiliou: It is a pleasure for me to celebrate such an event in the framework of the EU-China Year of Intercultural Dialogue.
Among the two hundred events marking the Year to promote mutual knowledge and understanding between the Chinese and European people, today's exhibition is certainly one of the most original I have had the chance to participate in.
What could be more charming than the spontaneous expression of children?
||SOUNDBITE (in English) by Wu Hailong: With the efforts, people to people exchange has become the third pillar for China-EU relations. I am confident that this development will set a stage for events and activities.
