Ma Yi （aka: Ant）, a comics artist living in Shanghai, has been involved in Angouleme International Comics Festival in France for five consecutive years. Since 2007, he has created Yuna series for M.D Production, the Soleil at France, and accomplished three comic books up to now. The experience of working with European fellows has inspired him to think and explore the alternative ways of expression within the culturally mixed context. In the workshop, he will share his knowledge and feeling of the European comics world with the participants as well as present his unique Chinese-Western combined skills of watercolor painting.

Youths Web-Based Cultural Communities
At present, many young people share and discuss cultural topics and their artistic progresses mainly through the use of Internet. Responding to this trend, we will invite members of these communities to the museum, participating discussions in the real life. Hosting by a few unique and influential web-based groups, these events will include assorted art practice presentations and workshops, such as illustration, photography, theatre, and music, etc.; lectures and conversations on specific cultural and social topics; interactions with the audiences. In the meantime, we will also invite sociologists, professionals in communications and anthropologists to attend sessions, and to share their knowledge in related fields by giving lectures and leading discussions.
