Our Thoughts

How does a belief that has been passed down for more than a thousand years continue to influence society today?

What kind of impact does cultural traditions from the other side of the world have on the concept of multiculturalism here?

If we reclaim a marginalized language before it is forgotten, can we gain a deeper understanding of our own land and culture?

Through poetry and paintings, what new perspectives about the world we co-exist in can we discover?

A pilgrimage with a historical and spiritual legacy has the same destination for everyone, yet the journey has become the starting point for inspiring change for people from all over the world.

A book of poetry, accompanied by chigiri-e paintings, intertwines stories of mundane everyday lives with an appreciation of Taiwanese culture.

Witness the changes of time while following the aged road of faith; listen to the whispers of Taiwanese to find the heartbeat of the local culture.

These experiences may be invisible, but they connect us all in a dialogue with the past, reflecting on the present, and present hope for the future.

TAIWANfest Vancouver is grateful to be held on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territories of the Coast Salish peoples of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam Indian Band), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish Nation), and Səl̓ílwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh Nation). We acknowledge our privilege to be gathered here, and commit to work with and be respectful to the Indigenous peoples of this land while we engage in meaningful conversations of culture and reconciliation.
