Tsung Yeh Artist Village (Tainan-Taiwan) > Arts in Residence Programme

The Tsung-Yeh Artist Village in Tainan City is the result of the fusion of an old sugar refinery with multicultural ideas to form a unique space. With years of effort, Tsung-Yeh Artist Village has established itself as a center for arts, crafts and culture while producing valuable creative works in Tainan. Through providing the working space and encouraging resident artists to communicate with the locals, we hope to promote this historical site not simply as a place for exhibitions, but rather an important gathering site for international arts and artists.

Tsung-Yeh Artist Village takes as its theme the concept of ‘Site-Specific Art’. The artists also can engage with Tainan and Madou locality’s natural and historical sites, and with local communities.
