Artists-in-Residence Program for 2023 Siao-Long Cultural Park

In 1624, the Dutch built Fort Zeelandia in AnPing, Tainan, resulting in Tainan being regarded as the first city to have been established in Taiwan. Thus, 2024 will be the 400th anniversary of Tainan becoming a city, and hence the theme for the coming year’s (2023) residency will be centered on buildings, living space, urban regeneration, industries and the development of the economy, among other subjects. Through visual art practice, the residency aims to examine, represent and re-consider the changes seen in Tainan during the past 400 years. In addition, it will explore people’s moving and migration around the globe owing to political or economic reasons, either through personal choice or because they were forced out, resulting in changes to the culture, the aesthetics, the ideologies and the living environments. The residency will visualize the changes seen in Tainan - and even across Taiwan as a whole - in the past, and will also anticipate the city’s - and the island’s - potential presence in the future. [Eligibility] A. We welcome applicants who are interested in: 1. Interdisciplinary, 2. Visual arts and 3. Performance. B. All applicants must be able to communicate in either English or Chinese. C.
