Let’s join hands through arts and culture to bring gentle strength to Hong Kong! The 2019 Taiwan Arts Festival — “Together Taiwan” — took place from Oct. 4 to Nov. 19, covering a total of 47 days, 16 projects, 57 events, and 31,028 attendees. A big thank you to each and every person involved. We worked together to construct a stage blooming with talent, build an open and free platform, and create countless moving and wonderful memories. The 2019 Taiwan Arts Festival featured three main sections — The Masters: Refined by Time, The Platform: Interactions of Collaborations, and The New: Voices of Diversity. From inheriting the artistic essence and wisdom of great masters, to explosive Taiwan and Hong Kong cultural collaborations, to the innovative and diverse voices of the new generation, this year’s festival showcased artistry in film, dance, theatre, music, visual arts, new media art, design, animation and literature, not only sharing Taiwan’s rich arts and culture with the world, but also demonstrating the infinite possibilities of Taiwan-Hong Kong cultural collaboration. It is our hope that these deep exchanges can continue to create new opportunities for both cultures.
