FORMOSA Project by FORMOSA and UALTWS
FORMOSA team and the University of the Arts London Taiwanese Society collaborate to present Taiwanese emerging young creative talents through series of exhibitions and events in London. UALTWS was established to strengthen the connection of Taiwanese students in UAL since 1996. It aims to create collaboration and cooperation opportunities for young creative talents, as well as to present Taiwanese culture and creativity by various events, exhibitions and workshops. In 2009, FORMOSA teamed up and decided to present a series shows together with UALTWS by sharing all resources and ideas. The FORMOSA project produce multi-discipline exhibitions for Visual arts, join London Design Festival for Design, and presenting fashion shows/exhibitions for its Fashion. FORMOSA project is linked with London local media, art and design industries, academia, and many ethnic groups and societies to enhance to accessibility to public and industrial relevant professionals.

09 年時,FORMOSA 企劃和 UALTWS 終於碰頭,帶著相同的理想和信念,開始了一
系列的福爾摩沙企畫。福爾摩沙是一群在英國學藝術與設計的台灣人經過多年的
累積轉型後而發起的團隊,至力於在歐洲與全球推廣台灣的藝術與設計,首發之
地就在英國倫敦;而 UALTWS 是英國藝術學校最大的台灣社群,至 2010 年 3 月止
UAL 的台灣學生共有 333 人與多校連結且觸角伸及各種組織與企業,將資源運用
在加強 UAL 就讀之台灣學生間的連繫和促進與業界合作發展,推廣台灣本土文化
為成立宗旨。這不謀而合的巧遇,賦予了福爾摩沙企劃的可能性。於是,在 2010
年,福爾摩沙企劃將推出一系列的展覽、活動、及講座,將各領域的藝術與設計
在倫敦的大舞台創造更多發聲的機會,當中包括了六月份的"辦桌"聯展、九月
份的福爾摩沙設計展、以及計畫中的時裝展和視覺藝術聯展。在一連串的活動與
展覽中,期盼這投石問路的系列活動為台灣藝術與設計在國際間帶來更多展現的
機會、與合作的契機。
