Welcome to Taiwan

Time flies, only one week left before artists coming!!!!

In order to welcome artists, as well as announce the international art project to all in the village and ask everyone’s help, we had a puppet show with children at the end of last month.

Children learned how to make puppets using socks and old clothes. Also, they discussed the story and roles.  Before public performance in front of the village temple, they practised again and again…..

Here is the show :

PART I  ( Before the show, we paraded through the village! Also, a dance before the show….everyone was very nervous…)

PART II  (Sorry, no English. But the show told parents and grandparetns that children start to learn lots English in school, because 5 international artists will come to ChengLong Village in April for 3 weeks. Please help with accommodations, dinner, materials, tools…..)

PART III  (Welcome to Taiwan!!!!)

After this show, we did get a lot of help from the community. Now we have enough rooms for artists and volunteers (although it is small, it is clean!). We know where to get free shells and where to buy bamboos……The village has prepared lots colourful banners and  a WELCOME PARTY for all artists ~ Welcome to Taiwan!!!!!  Welcome to ChengLong !!!
