Taipei Artist Village residency
Located in Taipei City, nestled in its small, secluded yard with bamboo grove, Taipei Artist Village (TAV) is an oasis in the urban environment.
TAV includes 12 individual studio spaces, dance rehearsal space, a piano studio, and performance hall; all facilities to support projects at various stages of development, including research, art creation, exhibitions and performances.
Managed by the Taipei Culture Foundation, TAV continues to be a centre for creativity, reaching out to local residents as well as foreign artists through a variety of activities.
TAV enjoys a growing influence in Taiwan’s artistic circles as it provides a valuable experimental ground for the arts in Taiwan.
The residency programme exists to promote multinational and cross-disciplinary collaboration. These interactions help create intercultural and interdisciplinary dialogues that resonate between communities and individuals long after the artist’s residence is completed.
This residency is open to people working in visual arts, performance, music and theatre. Preference will be given to artists who work in the fields of contemporary Maori and Pacific arts or within the theme of indigenous issues.
Dates: April-June 2018.
