According to Global News for New Immigrants, the long-awaited 2021 Yuguang Island Art Festival will run from March 27 to April 18 in Tainan.
Due to the pandemic, people are physically and mentally exhausted, and they cannot go abroad for relaxation.
Therefore, this exhibition’s theme is “Resting Island,” using the beach, forest, sunset, and waves as the exhibition venue.
The artists are invited to use the characteristics of the environment to create a healing space.
Meanwhile, the organizers hope that everyone who comes to Yuguang Island can change their state of mind and find their own resting place through the artists’ works.
This year, the festival will feature 12 groups of artists. Also, the opening on March 27 will boast performances by the bands and singers.

Tainan city government said the island will be closed from March 27 to April 18 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day.
The control point is at the Yuguang Bridge entrance, which is closed to cars and scooters and is only open to shuttle buses, local residents, local businesses, and official cars.
