Tsungyeh Artist Village, Tainan, Taiwan
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.
As the oldest city in Taiwan, Tainan is so unique because of its profound historical context, traditional folk belief, regeneration of aged buildings, and the variety of art spaces. Tainan City Government has launched open calls for Artist-In-Residence (AIR) program to select international and domestic artists to station in Tainan. For many artists, taking a residency is a way to explore one’s art practice while discovering different culture. Currently, there are two artist villages managed by Tainan City Government, Soulangh Artist Village and Tsung-Yeh Artist Village.
