Taipei Arts & Culture Tour
5 Aug
       
  

Boasting a booming arts and cultural scene in recent years, Taiwan has blended sound arts and cultural policies and heritage conservation with the concerted efforts of the government and community bodies to set a good example for many others to follow. To learn from the Taiwan experience, the Hong Kong Arts Development Council will bring the Arts Ambassadors-in-School across the strait on a five-day ‘Taipei Arts & Culture Tour’ to broaden their cultural vistas by getting to know, appreciate and experience the vibes of cultural Taipei.

Arts Ambassadors will visit Taipei’s arts groups and organisations, cultural facilities and exhibitions, take part in workshops and meet face-to-face with local artists and arts administrators to acquire a deeper understanding of local arts and culture in Taipei. 

 

Highlighted spots as follows:
  • Juming Museum: the largest outdoor museum in Taiwan;
  • Museum of Contemporary Art, Taipei (MoCA): the first museum in Taipei dedicated exclusively to contemporary art and shares the same architecture with a secondary school;
  • The Red House: the arts and cultural space converted from historical buildings;
