TELUS TAIWANfest returns to Harbourfront Centre in Toronto

Discover contemporary Taiwanese artistic expressions inspired by the Ocean

TORONTO, ON (July 26, 2013) – From Aug. 23 through 25, Harbourfront Centre hosts TELUS TAIWANfest, a weekend-long celebration of Taiwanese arts and culture that explores this year’s theme, “Children of the Ocean.”

Connecting continents and civilizations, the ocean symbolizes diversity, inclusiveness and infinity while remaining an integral part of life forms.

The ocean influences every aspect of culture, being a gateway to communication between nations across the globe. TELUS TAIWANfest explores how Taiwan, an island nation where the people are constantly battling with national identity, learn from their cultural past and envision a future inspired by the ocean.


Festival highlights include:
  • Musical performances including the TELUS TAIWANfest Concert with Rachel Liang – Princess Balenge, Musical Symphony at the Harbour showcasing a collaboration between Eastern and Western music, Sounds of Hohaiyan – Lang Hsin Band featuring a percussionist band and Sunny Raynn, an alternative rock band;
  • Food demonstrations from The Brave Chef and a bubble-tea lounge for patrons;
  • Art exhibitions including The Ship Show showcasing hand-made wooden ships and 400 Years of Taiwan with Rhythms Monthly giving insight to the beauty of the island of Taiwan and the challenges it faces;
  • Plus much more!
