Overseas Community Affairs Council 2021 Taiwanese Culture and Folk Art Teacher Training Program had begun!
The "Taiwanese Culture and Folk Art Teacher Training Program" has been organized by the Overseas Community Affairs Council (OCAC) since 2017. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic this year, trainees are not able to return to Taiwan to participate in the training, therefore we will use technology and a new method to hold the first Taiwanese Culture and Folk Art Teacher Online Training Program from July 12th to July 30th, 2021, to continue the cultivation of talent for promoting Taiwan's folk art and culture to the overseas compatriot community. A total of 71 participants from 15 countries around the world have signed up for the Program. The online training program is planned by the Overseas Compatriot Culture and Education Foundation this year, and the course has been designed with the core concept of Taiwan's traditional culture, which is divided into the three categories of "Folk Sports", "Folk Art" and "Folk Dance"; the trainees will choose any two to study. The program content includes lion dance (Taiwan lion), making dough figurines, dance of the Paiwan indigenous tribe, and so on. In addition to professional courses, lectures on the experience of organizing Taiwan Cultural Festivals overseas and promotion of Taiwanese culture will be arranged, for the trainees to fully and effectively learn the essence of Taiwanese culture with zero time difference and zero distance. In recent years, the OCAC has trained many folk and culture teachers overseas, all of whom had helped us to achieve good results in overseas cultural teaching, the organization of large-scale cultural events in the overseas compatriot community and the promotion of Taiwan's distinctive culture. The OCAC hopes trainees who had signed up the program of the year will serve as ambassadors of Taiwanese culture when they return home with the mission of passing on and promoting Taiwanese folk art and culture overseas, to allow Taiwan shine brightly internationally.
