For a long time, Bamboo Curtain Studio has endeavored to promote cross-cultural exchanges by lifting barriers, and provides a creative environment for artists. In 2020, we decided to produce a podcast show to connect with our Southeast Asian friends in the creative industry.
The new podcast “Art Connect” is a special edition of 12 episodes on COVID-19 and arts. We will bring you how the artists and cultural organizations in Taiwan and Southeast Asia region are responding to the pandemic with arts and actions.
