Siao-Long Cultural Park

Siao-Long Cultural Park

Artists in Residence Program


Siao-Long Cultural Park is located in the Jiali district, on the northern outskirts of Tainan city. Jiali is a tranquil and leisurely small town with a laid-back lifestyle, located approximately 45 minutes’ drive from downtown Tainan. The park has evolved from the former Jiali Sugar Factory, where its revitalized Japanese era sugar refinery warehouses have successfully merged historic architecture with modern design in an area which is itself rich in history, culture and agriculture. As a cultural stronghold for traditional performance and folk arts, the park has transformed itself into a modern art venue which promotes artistic growth.

Siao-Long aims to foster international exchange with artists from around the world and thereby create a vibrant community of artists, both local and international, emerging and established. Resident artists will be living in close proximity to local craftsmen artisans and they are encouraged to take the community and the vibrant local culture as inspiration for their artworks. Artists have access to wheelchair accessible, air-conditioned, modern studio spaces, as well as galleries and theatres for exhibitions, workshops and performances.

AIR Theme for 2020 -  Siao-Long takes the concept of ‘Site-Specific Art’ as its theme for the AIR program in 2020. For 2020, Siao-Long especially welcomes artists to work on art projects which are related to the topic of sugar, candies or fairy tales from cultures all over the world. The artworks should respond to the park’s environment, including the warehouses, corridors, the railway landscape, the children’s museum, and either the indoor or the outdoor spaces. They should also engage with the locality’s natural and historical sites, and with local communities.

  • During the residency, the selected applicants should provide one type of presentation, such as an exhibition or a performance. If you would also like to hold a workshop, this would be highly welcomed.
  • Approaching the end of the residency, the successful applicants are required to complete a report and questionnaire. The report should include details of the residents’ experience, the progress of the project and any relevant feedback.
