They should also engage with the locality’s natural and historical sites, and with local communities. D. All applicants must be able to communicate in either English or Chinese.

Number of Participants

1. Siao-Long offers professional art galleries' space and suitable accommodation for free and adequate materials fee for artists; however, we do not have the service for assisting artists to complete art works. For example, you are an conceptual artist which relies on a professional team to help you to create art works. 2. We only subsidize selected artists, which means if you and your assistant would like to both participate, you need to apply as a duo/team. Please note that if you apply as a duo/team and are selected, your subsidy for living expenses is for a team, rather than for each single artist. For example, if two applicants apply as a duo and are selected, the living expenses are NT$30,000, which means the subsidy of NT$30,000 is for two artists, rather than for each single artist. 3. Please note that If you do not apply as a team including your assistants during submission and you are selected in the end, the accommodation is not available for non-artists to stay.
