週末活動|台灣文化節.結合音樂、藝術、美食,在加拿大「與日本乾杯」!

本週末絕對不可錯過的活動之一!台灣文化節將於週五開始在湖濱文化中心(Harbourfront Centre)展開為期三日的活動。

台灣文化節於溫哥華、多倫多已舉辦多年,近年更是擴大活動格局,結合亞洲不同國家的文化。在推廣台灣人的原生文化與認同的當口,也力行加拿大多元文化融合的宗旨,透過不同文化之間的激盪、不僅帶給該文化原屬人民一種特別的情感歸屬,更讓他國移民看到亞洲的美及學校裡學不到的歷史故事。

 

今年在音樂、藝術、美食上皆結合了日本文化。由來自東京的甜點創作者會田由衣所創作的甜點帶給與會者除了味覺之外的視覺饗宴。

Dinosaurs are coming to TAIWANfest?! Seventeen-year-old Ning Hsieh, influenced by the art of paper cutting as well as his love for animals and Western comics, puts a new spin on this ancient art form. As long as he has paper and his scissors in hand, dinosaurs, animals, insects, and whatever his imaginative mind can dream of are born from his creative hands. In addition to the endearing creatures he also creates life-sized superhero costumes, both of existing personas as well as an original characters! See his exhibit “The Paper Play – Paper Craft Artist Ning Hsieh” at #TAIWANfest this summer! Aug. 25-27 Harbourfront Centre West Corridor Bays Sept. 2-4 Downtown Vancouver 600 block of Granville Street, between Georgia and Dunsmuir 十七歲的謝寧對紙藝、動物及西方漫畫充滿熱愛。只要有剪刀在手,昆蟲、恐龍或是任何他想像中的人物,都難不倒他的巧手。最令人讚嘆的是,他用紙做出人形比例大小的超人服裝。他不但把西方漫威漫畫的英雄角色栩栩如生地呈現,更運用這古老傳媒,紙的形式創造出各種創意性角色的服裝。他的作品,將會在台灣文化節「玩」紙藝術的展覽中呈現。 #Art #Paper #Papercraft #Exhibition #PaperCutting #HandCrafted #Taiwan #Origami #Dinosaurs #Festival #Artwork # Handmade #Event #Volunteer

透過玩紙藝術,呈現出日本與台灣在紙藝美感上的別具特色。

 

 

 

同時還會帶來台灣.三峽的定點陀螺表演。相信許多在台灣長大的朋友們,小時候一定都玩過陀螺吧!記得週末到Harbourfront Centre重溫童年。

音樂部分將於週五晚間,由謝建得大師與台灣文化節交響樂團吹響序曲,週六晚間則由生祥樂隊與米莎和大家一起搖滾!生祥樂隊由客家歌手林生祥老師領軍,以台灣傳統樂器演奏,融合搖滾及龐克樂元素,吟唱客語歌詞,該樂團今年剛獲得金曲獎評審團大獎。他們用音樂為台灣當地的弱勢族群發聲、用樂曲唱出對土地的熱愛、他們讓許多人聽見許多「不被看見的事」。無論你以前有沒有聽過他們的音樂,都值得前往親身體驗。

 

另外更不可錯過的,當然就是台灣畫家們的創作。陳澄波、楊三郎、陳清汾、灣生日人立石鐵臣等畫家的作品即將於多倫多展出。這幾位畫家的繪畫技法皆接受到濃厚的日本文化影響,並先後赴日本藝術學校學習,其中楊三郎更曾於法國留學,因此其作品受到印象派影響深厚。

該時期還有另外四位畫家與上述四位共同組成「臺陽美術協會」,致力於用繪畫保留台灣各地美景。當中以陳澄波的晚年生涯最為坎坷,身為傑出的台灣藝術家,最終被「欲加之罪」以犯人式綑綁當街遊行,並槍決身亡,享年52歲。實在令人惋惜!所幸,其部分創作仍被努力保留至今,想要親眼看看當年的台灣有多美嗎?這個週末的畫展,無論如何都要排出時間前往啊!

以下,一起來看看主辦單位精心製作的活動系列影片吧!接著,我們週末見囉!

Get a taste of Canadian diversity at #TAIWANfest this summer! Do you know the story behind the California roll? It might come as a surprise to many Canadians that the California roll was made right here in Canada and not the namesake American State! Meet the inventor of this fusion Japanese dish: Hidekazu Tojo! The Japanese-Canadian chef based in British Columbia took into consideration that many Westerners dislike the taste of seaweed, and had the brilliant idea of “hiding” the seaweed and thus the inside-out trademark of the California roll was born. Chef Tojo will be an honoured guest and judge with Chef Ching-Lung Hung, a consecutive winner of the Top Taiwan Beef Noodle Award, at this year's International Pan-Asian Culinary Invitational in Vancouver. With chefs representing Taiwan, Hong Kong, Japan, and Canada battling it out with their creativity, who's going to be the mastermind behind the next popular fusion dish? Aug. 25-27 #HarbourfrontCentre Sept. 2-4 #DowntownVancouver 你知道風靡北美的加州捲不是源自加州嗎? 加州捲其實是溫哥華知名日本師傅 東條英員(Hidekazu Tojo) 的發明! 東條英員發現西方人不喜歡海苔,顛覆傳統的壽司包法,將海苔包在飯裡面。他的發明紅遍海外,傳回日本,讓許多加州人慕名而來,而被命名成加州捲。 #Food #AsianCuisine #JapaneseFood #TaiwaneseFood #BubbleTea #Competition #BBQ #Sushi #Noodles #Fusion
