Taipei Artist Village (TAV) & Treasure Hill Artist Village (THAV)

Taipei Artist Village (TAV) & Treasure Hill Artist Village (THAV)


Through the Artist-in-Residence program, Taipei Artist Village and Treasure Hill Artist Village are building a multinational network of associative participation. With studios and accommodation for Taiwanese and international artists, this is a place where cross-cultural, cross-disciplinary forces collide and meld, generating artistic energy. It is a place where different classes, age groups and peoples meet and communicate.
The organizers hope these two artist villages will become laboratories of art, dedicated to allowing each artist and each person to enjoy the same life, the same openness and freedom. They are committed to letting human beings fully express their creativity and imagination, so that each person may appreciate the differences among us. Through the concept of “parallel spaces,” Taipei Artist Village and Treasure Hill Artist Village hope to engage in a generative dialogue with society right now, and become a platform of cross-cultural exchange.
