Tsung-Yeh Arts and Cultutal Center Artists-in-Residence Program

Tsung-Yeh Arts and Cultural Center is located in the Madou district, on the northern outskirts of Tainan City. Madou is a tranquil and leisurely small town with a laid-back lifestyle, located approximately 50 minutes drive from downtown Tainan. The cultural center as the factory and headquarter of the Japanese Meiji Sugar Manufacturing Corporation, Tsung-Yeh began operation in January 1912.

The four existing buildings have been declared by Tainan City Government as monuments for preservation, including the Red-Brick Office, the Guest House, the Red Brick Craft Hall, and the Factory Manager’s Dormitory. Currently, the Red Brick Office and the Red Brick Craft Hall are provided as two exhibition halls for the resident artists to create and exhibit their works.

In 1624, the Dutch East India Company built the first city of Fort Zeelandia on the island in Anping District and established the first ruling regime in Taiwan. Through the development of Anping by the Ming Dynasty, the concentration of trade and economic bases during the Qing Dynasty, and the construction of urban planning and water conservation facilities during the Japanese Dynasty, the foundation of Tainan’s urban development was laid. 2024 coincides with the 400th year of Tainan. We hope that through artistic intervention, we can record the present-day appearance of Tainan and move towards a richer and more diversified cultural city.
