2023 NZ Taiwan Day Chinese Culture Experience Trip
Art & Culture Exhibition
Are you ready for the upcoming Taiwan Day, after a long wait of three years? This year, we have prepared a unique art and culture exhibition, combining Western and traditional Chinese painting, calligraphy, floral art and using augmented reality (AR) of Chinese characters to showcase Taiwan’s diverse culture. Come and immerse yourself in the traditional and innovative artistic atmosphere and appreciate Taiwan’s spirit of inclusiveness. Let’s use art to soothe our souls and explore the beauty of Chinese characters together.
Modern Hard-Pen Calligraphy 現代硬筆書法
Hard-tipped pen calligraphy gets its name because the tip of the pen is hard and characters take a different form opposed to if written by the soft tip brush. It is also called “hard-tipped pen calligraphy” because it also has the traditional calligraphy art form. Its writing tools includes fountain pens, ballpoint pens, dip pens, pencils, and more.
The “National Hard Pen Character Writing Competition” hosted by Chiyuan Education Center started in 2017 and has entered its seventh year. In addition to the exhibition of last year’s award-winning works at 2023 NZ Taiwan Day, you can also register for this years competition on the spot.
Experience the Beauty of Taiwan Indigenous Architecture through VR
It may be difficult to appreciate the beauty of Taiwan’s indigenous architecture and experience their living environment in person. However, you won’t want to miss the “Explore the Beauty of Taiwan Indigenous Peoples’ Architecture” VR experience at the New Zealand Taiwan Day! Virtual Reality (VR) is an immersive computer simulation environment that allows users to feel like they are really there, as if they are in a virtual space. The VR experience, brought to you by the Feng-Xing Digital Learning Centre, instantly transports you into the traditional architecture of Taiwan indigenous peoples when you put on VR glasses. Take some time to experience it and feel the unique cultural charm of Taiwan indigenous architecture, which combines different building materials found in nature.
