Guandu Nature Park
Guandu International Nature Art Festival (originally entitled Guandu International Outdoor Sculpture Festival), dating back to 2006, was Taiwan's first large-scale natural art event held in a conservation park. With the experience in the past ten years, this art event has come to a new stage by resetting its title since 2016. The triangle composed of river culture, wetland conservation, and environmental art is still the solid foundation of the curatorial concepts. This event aims to serve as a catalyst to deepen the public’s awareness of our environment, as well as care for local cultures. It is hoped that every single participant of this festival will take the initiative to connect with their surroundings, to get inspired by nature, and to make an effort in finding a way to a sustainable future.
