They can be found in Tiong Bahru, Singapore’s oldest public housing estate.

Taiwan Residency Exchange

About Taipei Artists Village

AIR Taipei is the umbrella organization overseeing two very different and unique artists-in-residence sites around the city. The Taipei Artist Village was established in 2001 by the Department of Taipei Cultural Affairs and has been developing relationships linking the artists exchange program with cities throughout the world. Treasure Hill Artist Village, a historical architectural community, was launched in 2010. Both sites complement each other through diverse landscape, scale and location yet each site helps place the arts firmly in the cultural sights for a local and international audience.Located in central Taipei the Taipei Artist Village is a great spot for artists to explore the urban landscape and offers easy access to activities and institutions throughout the city; Treasure Hill is located in a special enclave in Taipei with its own history being part of the first wave of buildings in Taipei. It follows the idea of “paragenesis” creating dialogues between artists and the wider community providing the arts a social space for interacting and expressing ideas.
