WAA women's house

The Taiwan Womens Art Association (TWAA) was established in January 2000. Its members include women from professional disciplines within the arts, including fine art practice, administration, criticism and education. For the past twenty years, the association has been promoting and assisting women with research and development in the field of visual art. There are currently almost 300 members of the TWAA, among which there are several who are active in both Taiwanese and international art fields. The services offered to members by the association include establishing databases and archives of the members, as well as curating exhibitions and relevant art events, while it also aims to encourage and stimulate connections among its associates for the mutual sharing of professional experience and collaboration in projects, both in Taiwan and internationally. The current chair of the TWAA is Dr Ming Turner, a curator, art historian and Associate Professor at National Cheng Kung University in Taiwan.
