I’m really excited to finally begin sharing pictures of Treasure Hill (寶藏巖), my new favorite place to visit in Taipei! Treasure Hill is a historic community that was founded by veterans of the Chinese Nationalist Party (Kuomintang) back in the late 1940s. Academics and activists protested against the eviction of the villagers when it was to be rezoned into a parkland. After cooperating with non-governmental organization Global Artivists Participation Project, the city government developed the area into a living art village and environmentally sustainable urban community.
I’ve been there twice now (and will probably visit many more times) so I have quite a collection of pictures taken over three different rolls of film – this post focuses mainly on the Art Village aspect, lots of really cool installations, wall art, office spaces and cafes.
