Our Organizers:

Taiwan-Asia Exchange Foundation founded in 2018, the Taiwan-Asia Exchange Foundation (TAEF) is the first policy-oriented think tank in Taiwan focusing on Southeast Asian and South Asian affairs and facilitating Taiwan’s New Southbound Policy (NSP). In the spirit of the NSP, the TAEF aims to promote comprehensive ties between Taiwan and the ASEAN countries, South Asian countries, as well as Australia and New Zealand through facilitating cooperation and exchanges in five major fields – think tanks, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and civil society’s connectivity, young leaders initiatives, regional resilience, and cultural affairs – to consolidate a sense of regional community in Asia and establish long-term multifaceted partnerships.

Taiwan Art Space Alliance , (hereinafter “TASA”) entitled TASA was established in 2016. It integrates dozens of art villages and art spaces across Taiwan and holds regular meetings every year across Taiwan to discuss the position and role of artists in residence (AiR) in contemporary art through an annual series of meetings and lectures. TASA was to serve as a platform for the exchange and integration of resources among artists in residence (AiR) and art spaces throughout Taiwan. In addition, by connecting organizations and planning events, TASA endeavors to improve and strengthen the overall environment for art and culture in Taiwan, while attracting new energy in promoting international cooperation and expanding the global network among art institutions.
