We are pleased to announce the first event of the TEAM (Trans-East-Asia Multiculturalism) project that aims to innovatively facilitate the sharing and discussion of experiences and concerns regarding multicultural questions by advancing trans-East-Asian collaboration. In the region, the rise of (trans-Asian) migration has made ethno-cultural diversity more intensified and visible. While this has generated national policy discussion to administer cultural diversity, a substantial engagement has not yet made to fairly deal with diversity and make societies more inclusive. Featuring visual and artistic expression, this event will invite both amateur and professional practitioners from Taiwan, Japan, South Korea and Hong Kong to have a conversation over how such practice is significant for self-empowerment and the promotion of cultural diversity in each society and how we can work together to further develop it in East Asia. Internationally acclaimed film director, Mr. Hou Hsiao Hsien will join us as a commentator.
