2018 marks the tenth anniversary of the Wenchuan Earthquake in Sichuan Province, China. A magnitude 8.0 earthquake shook Sichuan on 12 May 2008 and turned out significant casualties and property damage.
To mark the tenth anniversary of the Wenchuan Earthquake; and to inform friends from abroad who have been following closely the quake and the reconstruction process of what we have achieved in post-disaster reconstruction, “Make the World a Better Place – International Children’s Painting Exhibition in Honour of the Tenth Anniversary of Wenchuan Earthquake” has been put together in Sydney and Chengdu concurrently, where children from Sichuan are invited to portray the quake from memory and their homelands today. This Exhibition also attracted many Australian children of Chinese ancestry to depict their memory of their homelands in China.
