AIR Taipei has two residency locations, Taipei Artist Village (TAV) and Treasure Hill Artist Village (THAV). Taipei Artist Village is a four-story building located in the heart of Taiwan’s vibrant Governmental District in Taipei City. Secluded within a tranquil garden, this renovated public office building that once belonged to the Taipei City Department of Public Maintenance and Construction is breathing new life into bustling downtown Taipei. Since the establishment of TAV, the Taipei City Department of Cultural Affairs has actively launched the artist-in-residence program as well as artist exchange programs with other international artist residency centers in different cities across the globe. Located along the Xindian River in Taipei City, Treasure Hill Artist Village was listed in 2004 as the first “historical architectural community” by the Taipei City Department of Cultural Affairs. The unique location of Treasure Hill with its narrow alleys and stairways snaking across the hillside gives THAV the feeling of a rural village. Over the years, various groups settled on the hillside with their own lifestyles and needs, creating a tribal-like organic scene. Joining together with the original residents, the city’s policy of preservation and revitalization, the Artist-in-Residence program and the Traveler’s Hostel all aim to achieve …

The Taitung County Government is offering the chance for artists from all over the world to take part in the Austronesian International Arts Award 2012. With the enthusiasm and inspiration echoing that of the Austronesian spirit, the competition is open to all artists regardless of ethnicity or nationality. The word “Austronesian” comes from the anthropological term “Austronesian language family.” It refers to ethnic groups that live on islands in the South Pacific and Indian Oceans. The family has a large number of Austronesian languages and ethnic origins with pure and clean scenery containing multi-cultures in their inhabited areas. Taiwan has a high population density of Austronesian ethnic groups as well as the most diverse tribes. In addition to the 14 aboriginal tribes recognized by the government, there is also the Pin-Pu tribe that is said to have been influenced most by the Han Chinese at a very early stage. It is therefore that Taiwan has been suggested by some scholars to be the homeland of the Austronesian language family. Recognizing excellence in all areas, the Austronesian International Art Award 2012 celebrates the richness of art by setting NO specific theme. All artists worldwide are encouraged to enter the competition, expressing …
