BIG EVENT! 2020 FACP Kaohsiung Online Conference in November
As a result of the pandemic, 2020 saw the devastation of countless industries worldwide. During these challenging times, arts institutions have been brainstorming possible solutions – how should the arts industry cope with the drastic changes to global socio-economic conditions creatively?
Since 2015 Weiwuying has been running international symposiums, making dialogues between arts, life and civic society. This year, in conjunction with the Federation for Asian Cultural Promotion (FACP) Annual Conference, Weiwuying's International Symposium on “the Arts Industry in the Post-Pandemic Era” reflects the responses from the arts industry towards the challenges and impact of the pandemic, discusses the potential transformation of arts and culture under the digital era, and the flexibility to swiftly act on a risk society.
Including Pitch & Catch, Online Artists Time, FACP Annual General Meeting, Weiwuying International Symposium and Asia Fast Forward. Weiwuying partners with the FACP to gather members from the Asia-Pacific region, including artistic directors, art managers, administration and artists to exchange resources and ideas to promote arts and culture.

Following the inevitable slow-down due to the pandemic, the Weiwuying International Symposium in 2020 discusses the Role of Arts under the precautions of “avoiding contact” and “social distancing”. With the subthemes of “Experience” between arts and the public, “Making” by the artists and practitioners and “Ideas” of reflection by arts institutions, the Symposium in Kaohsiung brings us to the melting points between the arts and the contemporary society, provoking exchanges in both the physical and the virtual worlds.
