Soulangh Artist Village arose from the former Jiali Sugar Factory. The Soulangh Artist Village’s revitalized Japanese era sugar refinery warehouses successfully merge historic architecture with modern design in an area rich in history, culture and agriculture. The artist village is a cultural stronghold for traditional performance and folk arts and is emerging as a modern art venue that promotes artistic growth. SAV utilizes fourteen re-purposed historic sugar warehouses to create an arts and culture focused mixed-use facility. Surrounded by rural farms and quaint villages, is half an hour from downtown Tainan and minutes from the hi-tech Tainan Science Park.
SAV aims to foster international exchange with artists from around the world and create a vibrant community of artists; local and international, emerging and established. Artists will be living in close proximity to local craftsmen artisans and are encouraged to take the community and vibrant local culture as inspiration for their art works. Artists have access to wheelchair accessible air-conditioned modern studio spaces, galleries and theatres for exhibitions, workshops and performances.
