TaiwanICDF’s Little Moments in a Big World Exhibition to Open as Part of 2015 Shilin International Cultural Festival

TaiwanICDF’s Little Moments in a Big World Exhibition to Open as Part of 2015 Shilin International Cultural Festival

The TaiwanICDF and Shilin District Office, Taipei City, are to jointly present an exhibition, Little Moments in a Big World: Impressions of International Cooperation, at Taipei City Shilin Public Assembly Hall, introducing some of the rich cultural features of a range of countries by bringing together a selection of 50 outstanding photographs shot in 26 countries alongside cultural artifacts provided by foreign embassies. The exhibition’s opening ceremony will take place on the morning of October 7, with the event then running to October 31.

As Taiwan’s professional organization for international development assistance, the TaiwanICDF spares no effort both in assisting its developing partner countries to pursue socio-economic development, and in providing humanitarian assistance. On this occasion, by jointly organizing an exhibition with Shilin District Office, Taipei City, as part of the 2015 Shilin International Cultural Festival, the TaiwanICDF hopes to expand viewers’ international perspectives through their appreciation of the landscapes and cultural customs of other countries, as portrayed by international development aid workers and other outstanding photographers. Viewers will also gain a deeper understanding of these different cultures thanks to a complementary exhibition of cultural artifacts from a number of partner countries.

The photographic works to be displayed at Little Moments in a Big World, selected from a host of online submissions, will be presented alongside around 100 cultural artifacts such as traditional costumes, handmade textiles and pottery, all provided by foreign embassies located in Shilin District especially for the event. The hope is that viewers will gain a better understanding of the history and culture of these countries.

Furthermore, to accompany the exhibition, on October 17 and 24 the TaiwanICDF will hold two free talks by former members of the TaiwanICDF Overseas Volunteers Program and the Taiwan Youth Overseas Service. Offering a face-to-face sharing of overseas life and experience, this will allow the audience to become acquainted with different worlds through stories experienced first-hand.(E)
