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…
