Overseas Arts Travel
2013 —
FOUNDER:

Goals: Encourage young artists to expand their horizons and enhance their professionalism through gaining experience overseas. This, in turn, will increase their artistic capabilities, and infuse new life into Taiwan’s artistic innovation and competitiveness.

Funded by Kuang Chuan Dairy Co., Ltd., the program encourages young artists pursuing their dreams in the performing arts, visual arts, literature, and audio/video production to go abroad to attend international arts events, visit arts groups, and learn new techniques. Held for the first time in 2013, the project supported 15 artists’ trips abroad. Upon their return, grant recipients visited schools, communities, independent bookstores, and other arts and cultural venues to share what they had learned.
