General Information

Located at the junction of Danshui and Jilong River, Guandu Nature Park is a nature reserve area consists of an integrated wetland environment of swamps and ponds. It is a great inhabitation for a rich variety of organisms, as well as an important relay stop for migratory birds. Therefore, it has been recognized by BirdLife International as an Important Bird Area. The park, authorized by Taipei City Government, is currently managed by the Wild Bird Society of Taipei (WBST) ,which devotes care to wetland and wild bird conservation.

Guandu Nature Park has been holding Guandu International Outdoor Sculpture Festival since 2006. Over the past 9 years, 53 artists from 24 countries around the world have accomplished collectively 62 pieces of artworks in Taipei, Taiwan. These reputable artists skillfully integrated their experience in life into their artworks. They also incorporated their personal appreciation for the environment and culture into their artworks and shared their concerns for environmental conservation and love for planet earth with the public. “Caring for our planet through art” is what we intend to convey via the festival, and these artists have accomplished just that.

About Residency
