The Atayal Tribe in Chingchuan Village, Hsinchu County is the site for The Wufong Project. This project is a joint International effort to raise funds for a long needed Community Center. Photographers, artists and the Atayal children have worked in concert to create a cohesive spirit through photography and painting workshops designed for the renewal of the creativity that has been one aspect of tribal culture and lifestyle for many generations.

Now there is an opportunity for you to join us in this project. The Exhibition and Fundraiser Auction Event will be at the Pavilion of Aroma of Flowers (Aboriginal Cultural and Creative Works Venue) 風味館(原住民文創商品旗艦店).

新竹縣清泉社區的泰雅部落是五峰計畫執行的主要地區,這個計畫結合了國際力量籌募社區中不可或缺的活動中心。藉著攝影及繪畫,結合攝影師、藝術家和泰雅部落孩童們的凝聚力,社區內文化生活創意產業的更新與重建已進行多年。現在,你也有機會參與這個計畫!展覽會及資金籌募活動將舉辦在風味館(原住民文創商品旗艦店),竭誠歡迎您前來共襄盛舉。

The children’s photos and group art projects will be on display to be auctioned off to raise money for this project. Please join us as we work together to make a meaningful and positive change in the lives of these children.

展覽會裡有泰雅孩子們的攝影及團隊繪畫作品,這些作品也會在拍賣會上進行拍賣。請加入我們,並和我們一起為這些孩子打造更有意義的美好人生!

MRT Directions:

Take the Red Line to Yuanshan MRT station. Take Exit 1. As soon as you get out you will see the Flora Expo. Look at the sign that says “Fine Arts Museum” with an arrow. Please follow the arrow. Walk about 5 minutes through the walkway until you come to Jongshan N. Road. Cross the street and the Pavilion is right in front of you!! Large bamboo structure! Can’t miss it!

Live aborigine music, aborigine wine, snacks, auctions and raffles! Sounds like a good time!

Malinda Schultz: This is it!!! In a matter of a wee, few, small hours, everything that you have believed and supported is about to come to pass.

From the humble beginnings of a simple idea, a small group of impoverished yet talented group of Atayal kids will be given the opportunity to explore their artistic abilities and hopefully realise their potential to what is now fondly known as “The Wufong Project.”

A huge THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH, to all those who had the organisational skills, the teaching abilities, the photographic and artistic talents, the kind and generous financial sponsorship support, the awesome contacts with people who took it to another unimaginable level.

Whether or not you can attend the Auction this weekend, know that YOU will have a special place in the hearts of the community of Chingchuan from here on…
