TAIWANfest is a Canadian cultural festival exploring connections between cultures through arts. Starting in 2016, our Dialogue with Asia series, including Hong Kong, the Philippines, Vietnam, Japan and South Korea, has focused on shared histories and cultural trajectories between different communities. This year, TAIWANfest will Indulge in Indonesia and Discover Malaysia. Discover the art of Batik, the melodies from Kanatal, traditional cultural dishes such as the zongzi, film screenings, virtual “Hope Talks” and more. TAIWANfest 2022 will find the Stories of Independence that resonate within all of us.
