MuHsiang Children’s Home provides a nurturing home for youths affected by domestic violence. They will be moving into a new residence and Bright Side Projects needs your support, artists, and art supplies, to create a home for them!
MuHsiang Children’s Home’s new residence is a former elementary school with 15 classrooms that will be renovated into dormitories for the youth. Bright Side Projects has been asked to assist with the beautification and would love to invite the artist community in Taiwan to forge a friendship with the children and to brighten the rooms and create a home for them!
Each room will feature an art installation by a local artist. Artists will first interact and engage with the children who will live in the room so the space created will be more meaningful on a personal and intimate level. We don’t simply want a house where people live, but a home where kids grow, learn, and dream in. Nothing can be more empowering than the ability to have influence in the way it is formed. Let’s work together to let dreams mingle into the formation of a home for each and every child in MuHsiang.
Period: July 27th – September 4th, 2014.
Location: Taoyuan (near Taoyuan International Airport)

We need to secure funds and resources by August 4th 2014 so we can begin work immediately. The amount of work for materials and other logistics for each of the rooms is at least $5,000 NT, or $150 USD. If you could directly sponsor a room or the funds towards one, we would be forever grateful! Additional funds are also urgently needed for transportation and healthy foods.
We would love to work with organizations that can directly provide art, textile, and craft supplies, or lend tools needed to complete these dreams.
* If there are remaining funds, they will go towards achieving the mission of Bright Side Projects future works in Taiwan.
