WDC Taipei 2016 project to create better livable city
Digital Art Festival Taipei
Digital Art Festival Taipei was inaugurated by Taipei City Government in 2006, with its Department of Cultural Affairs responsible for the festival’s execution. The Museum of Contemporary Art Taipei has been the main venue for exhibitions for the first four years of the festival, from Aura Spurt, the debut festival, to Openplay (the second), Trans (the third), and the Funky Light (the forth). The task for organizing the festival was handed over to Digital Art Center Taipei (DAC) when this center was inaugurated in 2009.
Digital Art Festival Taipei is held every November, bringing different digital art experiences to Taipei citizens. It features the International Digital Art Exhibition, Digital Art Awards, Digital Art Awards Taipei, Digital Art Criticism Awards, K.T. Creativity Awards, Creation Forum, and Digital Art Platform.
Artists convey their concerns for humanity and their observations of society by wielding the charm of digital technology. Through all types of media, artists delivered their messages into to the audience, who experience the appeal of digital art by partaking in various activities and performances during the annual event.
The organizer of the event regularly hosts the annual festival at different venues around the city, mostly at historic buildings, including the Red House Theater at Ximending; Bopiliao Historic Block at Wanhua; and Songshan Cultural and Creative Park, among others.
