The ARKAD Foundation includes among its activities the creation and development of cultural exchanges with other national and international artistic realities.
SERAVEZZA-HUALIEN SCULPTURAL EXCHANGE
Since 2003, the Foundation has worked for the development of a cultural exchange between the cities of Hualien in Taiwan and Seravezza. The city of Hualien, in Taiwan, is a seaside resort famous for the extraction and processing of marble, has about 150,000 inhabitants and has a natural park famous for its Taroko river. The city hosts economic activities such as quarries, industries and handicrafts in the stone industry, as well as a large community of artists, mainly sculptors, who set it up to develop privileged cultural relations with Seravezza.
With the aim of establishing the twinning between the two cities, a cultural exchange began between Seravezza and Hualien, promoted in synergy between the ARKAD Foundation and the Hualien City Cultural Center: the project foresees a series of artistic-cultural events involving the communities of artists and the economic realities of both geographical areas.
Arkad's future projects include the implementation of a Permanent Cultural Exchange between the cities of Seravezza and Hualien.
