Dawn Artist Village is a non-profit organization that promotes the arts both locally and internationally through art residencies, exhibitions, workshops, and participating in festivals. Established in 2012, our residency program has hosted artists from 12 different countries and helped them connect with the local crafts, artists, and materials to create their works. We have also helped to organize local festivals including the annual East Coast Land Arts Festival and Moonlit Sea Concerts. With access to a large network of artists and resources it is our aim to connect, inspire, and communicate through the arts.
We are located along the lower East Coast of Taiwan in Taitung county. Known for its rugged beauty and rich indigenous culture it is the most relaxed area of the island. Popular activities are surfing, hiking, cycling, hot springs, and partaking in the many cultural festivals. This narrow strip of land sandwiched between the pacific ocean and a mountain range attracts many creative people. Our residence space is about a 40 minute drive from Taitung City and is close to Dulan, a village that has become the art hub of the East Coast. From this location visiting artists can connect with the local arts and the openness of the the natural landscape for inspiration.
