    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Pingtung City is a melting pot of Aborigine, Han, and Hakkan culture. Our space regularly holds events, live shows, exhibitions, and meetings which look to connect many different peoples and ideas. We are also passionate about showing travelers around: either the scenic beauty of the mountains and rivers or other spaces around the city.

    About Pingtung Place of Arts:

    *** We currently are working on our basement to use as a hangout/exhibition center, our roof for a small rooftop vegetable garden, and making plans for our two day Christmas event, we need all the help and ideas we can get !

    Established in May 2015, The Place of Arts is an art community and education space located in the heart of Pingtung City. With seven floors the Place of Arts has rooms for exhibitions, live shows, rehearsal space, workplace and a backpacker guestroom. Our goal is to make Pingtung a center for the arts and for people to get to know this naturally rich and culturally diverse area of southern Taiwan. Our space will regularly hold themed events to talk about issues that we find important. Our main concerns are:

    1. Development and the appreciation of the Arts in Pingtung.
    2. Presentation and education of the diverse cultures in Taiwan.
    3. Concern about the environment; active in progressing towards a green and recycle-orientated city.
    4. Attention to animal welfare and stray animals.
    5. Promotion of vegetarian foods and healthy living.

    We are looking for assistance in either of the following options:
    (Join our space for one or many days up to a month to stay in our guestroom, join our activities, and get to know Pingtung.)

    A. 3 hours of working on the Place of Arts... Help maintain and clean building includes: sweeping, mopping, organizing, maintaining 1-6 floors. Assist on 1st floor (introducing space, help sell products) Design a room, paint a picture, write a poem, create something or assist practically to benefit the space.

    B. Help create a workshop, or hold an event that develops the appreciation for the Arts in Pingtung. Get to go to some other locations around the city.

    C. Use our space to open a class or hold an exhibition. Get to know the local scene, learn some basic chinese, and help our space reach its full potential!
