2020 Austronesian International Arts Award

Nearly 1/3rd of the population of Taitung are of Indigenous Taiwanese origin. To promote the rich Austronesian cultural heritage of Taitung’s Indigenous population, the Taitung Government has held the International Austronesian Art Awards since 2011. In an effort to promote artistic interactions between Austronesian artists throughout the world, starting in 2014 the awards were changed to a biannual event that integrates Austronesian culture with Modern art.
