ANU Taiwan Week Kicked off in Canberra on April 26, 2016
The 2016 ANU Taiwan Week, a ‘week full of events to promote the culture, traditions, arts and humanities of Taiwan’ - “Songs, Films, Teas and Music” - was held from April 26 to 29, 2016 at the Australian National University.

The events all celebrate Taiwan’s distinctive culture. Taiwan Week began with an Opening Night and Singing Competition, and included an “Elegant Night” Music Gathering, two Taiwanese Tea Tasting Workshops, and a 3-day Taiwan Film and Animation Festival.

Dr Tsai Tsan-Huang, the senior lecturer responsible for the ANU Taiwan Studies program, took a leading role developing the Taiwan Week activities. The Taiwan Studies Program, cosponsored by the Ministry of Education in Taiwan and the ANU, continues to enhance and make more broadly available knowledge of the history, society, languages and culture of Taiwan and its academic engagement with the Asia- Pacific region.

Taiwan Week was organized by the Department of East Asian Studies in the ANU School of Culture, History and Language (CHL), ANU CAP Student Association, and ANU Taiwan Student Association, and sponsored by the Education Division of the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Australia (TECO).

A Taiwan Education stall was set up to promote study in Taiwan and Executive Director Andy Bi of TECO delivered remarks on behalf of the Ministry of Education on the opening night.
