Greetings from OISTAT HQ!

You are invited to the online streaming of 2020 Tua-Tiu-Tiann International Festival of Arts --- Taiwan-New Zealand’s Dialogue on International Cultural Exchange Policies Amid Covid-19, on October 24, 2020.

OISTAT Executive Director Wanjung Wei will talk about OISTAT’s strategies and experience during this pandemic, along with a Q&A session with a group of cultural leaders.

This event is to respond to the main theme, Arts on Island Ark, of the 2020 Tua-Tiu-Tiann International Festival of Arts (TTTIFA). This year, as all international events around the world are overwhelmed by the landslide of Covid-19 pandemic, we understand the importance to keep the communications between countries through arts and culture that facilitate understanding among peoples in this hardship. Taiwan and New Zealand are both marked in international media of their success in controlling the spreading of Covid-19 within their borders and maintaining the economic activities as possible. Nevertheless, art and cultural workers are severely impacted during this time. Projects of international cultural exchange are pending. International cultural organizations and policy makers are urging to find methods to reconnect to the world. Cultural fields in Taiwan and New Zealand are not only facing the challenge in resuming the domestic dynamics, but also the need to reconnect to the world while keeping the nation safe at the same time. This forum aims to open a dialogue between international cultural organizations and practitioners of the two countries and exchange their observations and ideas that may lead to further progress on their works of cultural exchanging.
