  • 2021 Cien Artist-in-Residence Program “East coast Taiwan, Co-construction and Rebirth”
2021 Cien Artist-in-Residence Program (2021-CAIR). After more than two years of studies and research, Cien Artist Village has found its own unique, positioning direction. We look forward to promoting international exchanges, combining community and local resources through a series of artistic social practice movements, to help improve art education. We hope that we will continue to develop a greater feasibility of artistic social practice in the city of Hualien.

In 2021, we will start with the issue of " Socially engaged aesthetics and art practice ". Since the 1990s, a "new type of public art" form of expression that originated in the United States has gradually emerged. This type of creative practice has different titles. From relational aesthetics art, cooperative art, community art, participatory art, dialogue art, social participation art to public art, etc.
In 2021, Cien Art Village team hopes to collect papers in the village through the theme of " Socially engaged aesthetics and art practice " to explore the possibility of co-constructing the social context and responding to local issues through artistic creation.

When we continue to think about the various possibilities of allowing artistic creation to enter the people and communities, the creators demonstrate a certain social issue through the context of interacting with the community, "co-construction, rebirth".

Hualien, a region rich in the characteristics of mountains, rivers and ocean, on the east coast of Taiwan has in addition to the regional linear history of multiple cascades, all kinds of immigrant cultures coexisting at the same time. In 2021, Cien Art Village invites artists around the world to participate in the thinking of "co-construction" and "rebirth" with the characteristics of east coast Taiwan.
