TESA’s Artist-in-Residence

Founded in 2018, TESA Creative Center sets out from environmental concern and sustainable ecology, and inspires thoughts upon art, spaces, and the environment. Artist-in-Residence provides artists excellent places for art-making, living, research and exchange. Artists are also encouraged to contribute to the communities with art actions.  Artist-in-Residence in TESA aims to have international exchange in-depth and at the same time, introduce Taiwan to the world through artists from all over the world.

Art-Making and Living in TESA

Located at the naturally abundant Baisha Bay, TESA Creative Center consists of spacious places for art-making and detached living quarters . Artists are given the freedom to create their art projects around the untamed landscape. Artworks can be presented indoors or outdoors, so are exhibitions, forums, performances or seminars. A forklift, a stacker and an air compressor and all kinds of carving tools are available for artists. The saloon, the kitchen next to it and the wooden deck extending outwards are where artists can hang out.


In addition to TESA Creative Center, the art space and ceramic workshop in Danshui are also available for artists. They can exhibit or work here.
