2016 OPEN CALL FOR INTERNATIONAL RESIDENCE PROJECTS
AIR Taipei has two residency locations, Taipei Artist Village (TAV) and Treasure Hill Artist Village (THAV). Taipei Artist Village is a four-story building located in the heart of Taiwan's vibrant governmental district in Taipei City. Secluded within a tranquil garden, this renovated public office building that once belonged to the Taipei City Department of Public Maintenance and Construction is breathing new life into bustling downtown Taipei. Since the establishment of TAV, the Department of Cultural Affairs of Taipei City Department has actively launched the Artist-in-Residence (AIR) program as well as artist exchange programs with other international artist residency centers in different cities across the globe. Located along the Xindian River in Taipei City, Treasure Hill Artist Village was listed in 2011 as the first “historic settlement” of Taipei City. The unique location of Treasure Hill with its narrow alleys and winding stairways across the hill gives THAV a senseof a rural village. Over the years, various groups settled on the hillside with their own lifestyles and needs, creating a tribal-like organic scene. Joining together with the original residents, the city’s policy of preservation and revitalization, the Artist-in-Residence program and the Attic Hostel aim to achieve a spirit of “symbiosis” to create a better future for the entire community. 1.
