Taipei Artist Village

Artist-in-Residence Taipei is managed by the Department of AIR, Taipei Culture Foundation and operates in two places, Taipei Artist Village and Treasure Hill Artist Village.

Secluded by a serene garden, with vibrant Taipei City as a backdrop for creativity, Taipei Artist Village provides freedom and opportunity for innovation in the making of visual art, music, architecture, literature, curatorial and cultural research, arts administration, interdisciplinary arts and performance art and fosters artistic and cultural exchange between Taiwan and the rest of the world.

Based on the concept of "symbiosis", Treasure Hill Artist Village is dedicated to planting the roots of artistry at the local level, forming a setting where the environment, art and community converse, and providing artists with a space for living and working that is integrated with concern for society.

Taipei Artist Village is conveniently located at the hub of Taipei’s business and government districts. The 1,650-square-meter site and 4-story building are in the heart of Taipei City. Treasure Hill Artist Village is located in Taipei City's first official historical settlement.
