COT Winter 2023

Welcome to our Winter edition of Centered on Taiwan.

As we go to press with this issue we are still on a happy cloud after a stellar night at the Center’s Auction Gala on the 27th of October. A wonderful celebration of the center, and the community it serves. But more on that in our next edition.

Our long time friend and community member Ivy Chen has just released her book Made in Taiwan, written with Clarissa Wei. This collection brings alive the stories around the culture and people along with some very special recipes. Congratulations Ivy!

We have some choice picks for this season’s dose of art and culture. Lutetia ART-at-TAC leads the winter season with an exhibition of works by Taiwanese veteran artist Chang Yun-ming (張韻明).

Code Switch Theater Company, a newly formed Taiwanese-foreign collaborative theater company has a clear mission; ‘making theater for all who call Taiwan home.’

On exhibit at Studio 94, the World Press Photo exhibition is all about “opening people’s eyes and minds, building communities and hope, being responsible for the earth and cultivating compassion to do something meaningful for many others.”

Strolling around Showacho offers a glimpse into Taiwan’s time as a Japanese colony. Taking a lighter look at the Taiwan experience, Visions of Taiwan is a fun compilation of short stories illustrated in comic book style.

This is the season for giving, and a wonderful way to make a wish come true this giving season is to support the SALT Collectiv’s giving tree campaign. When it comes to seasonal foods, who doesn’t love pumpkin? Aside from its delicious taste, pumpkin has wonderful health benefits so let’s indulge in more things pumpkin.

As a non-profit organization, the Center offers COT free for all, supported by those who can. Get in touch if you would like to advertise with us or become a sponsor for future editions. Subscribe to the COT and never miss an issue. Wishing you a joy filled and peaceful season!
