Dadun Cultural Center

tcc13Taichung is home to many creative spaces, centers, and public art. The Dadun Cultural Center is open to the public and features a variety of creative spaces including galleries and exhibitions rooms, a public library, classrooms, a cinema, performance halls….the list goes on. Because it is free to attend and hosts interesting events as well as art collections, it’s another great way to interact with art and other cultural activities in Taichung.

 

I stumbled across the Cultural Center when walking back from exploring the Calligraphy Greenway. It is just off the Calligraphy Greenway and is a close neighbor to the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts. With it’s longer opening hours, it’s a convenient indoor place to explore in the evening or nightime after the sun has set.

In addition to the performance hall, there is an outdoor plaza for smaller performances and buskers. The Dadun Culture Center hosts bazaars on their outdoor plaza and along the Greenway for people to showcase their handmade crafts.

Throughout the year, the indoor art galleries host four major exhibitions including the Taichung City Female Artists Group Exhibition (in March), the Young Voices exhibition (April), the Taichung City Exhibition of Contemporary Artists (August), and the Dadun Fine Arts Exhibition (November). There are also year round exhibits, so there is always something to see at the Dadun Cultural Center.

The center is open Tuesday – Sunday, 8am – 9pm. It is closed on Mondays. If you are wandering along the Greenway, have just finished seeing the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Art, or just looking for something to do, you should definitely check out the spaces at the Dadun Cultural Center.

가장 트렌디한 타이중을 볼수있는곳, 칭메이(勤美)

(It’s about qin mei, what’s area looks like and introduce that they often have exhibition or event. I said qinmei is stylish and there are many shop looks cool that people might wanna try)

칭메이는 칭미술관 근처 일대를 부르는말인데, 타이중시티공원과 쇼핑몰들이 들어서있다. 트렌디한 레스토랑,카페,상점들이 많이 있어서 젊은 20대들이 많이놀러가는곳이다. 예쁘게 꾸며놓은 가게들이 많아서 사진찍기위해 오는사람들도 많았다. 오후가 되면 버스킹 하는사람들도 많고 주말이면 플리마켓이 열리는 날도 종종 있다.

마침내가 간날은 타이완 원주민의 날을 기념하기위해 행사가 열렸는데, 이틀동안 플리마켓과 공연을 한다고한다. 플리마켓은 핸드메이드 상품이나 악세사리, 빈티지의류 뿐만 아니라 원주민 스타일의 핸드메이드 악세사리도 팔고있었다. Continue reading
