Miaoli County boasts abundant natural landscapes and cultures. Whether it is the Tung Blossom Festival in May, the nostalgia of the steam train running along the Old Moutain Line, or the traditional wood sculpture, rush weaving, and brick kilns crafts, these are all themes of artistic creation. In light of this, the International Culture and Tourism Bureau organized the “Miaoli County Art-in-Residence and Exchange Program” at a lakeside hut by the Rixin Isle of Mingde Reservoir. This provides a creative space for the artists to bolster the county’s art and cultural depth. Those who are ROC nationals and work on creation, academics, administration, and skills related to culture and arts or the cultural and creative industry can apply to the program through the Bureau.
