The origin of the plan 計畫緣起
【Urban Sketchers】Urban Sketchers has gradually become a famous international cultural exchange tour for experiencing art and culture. The paintbrush replaces the camera lens. Sketchers can paint what they saw on journey on a piece of drawing paper, share their sketches on the internet to introduce these urban memories to others, and create amazing sparks through cross-national cultural exchange. The Urban Sketchers Club was officially founded on Facebook in Taiwan. As this trend grew and emerged throughout the island, Facebook pages were soon added for regional sites: Urban Sketchers Taipei, Urban Sketchers Taoyuan, Urban Sketchers Hsinchu, Urban Sketchers Puli, etc. From north to south, Urban Sketchers Club soon established its Facebook pages for almost every regional county and city. Meanwhile, international sketchers were continually interviewed for the purpose of cultural exchange. After the first Asialink Sketchwalk was held in Bangkok in 2016, fans from all over Asia have the chance to exchange ideas online. This year (2017), Malaysia held the second Asialink Sketchwalk in Kuching, so our government came up with the idea to be the one to hold the next event. Taichung is the first modernized city in Taiwan. It has preserved lots of architecture built before or after the Japanese Occupation Era, especially the old town in the Central District where one can find the Old Taichung Railway Station, Taichung Shiyakusho, Historical Taichung Prefecture Hall, Taichung Liu-Yuan Presbyterian Church, Chuan An Tang, Taichung Park, and many others. At the same time, the convenient transportation, friendly vendors and accommodations allow us to be prepared for holding the large Asialink Sketchwalk event. Therefore, we are fighting for the chance to hold the 2018 Asialink Sketchwalk in Taiwan. We’ll work closely with “The 2018 Taichung World Floral Exposition” to invite sketcher friends coming from all over Asia to gather together in Taichung to experience a tour in the old town district for cultural exchange.

【Urban Sketchets】速寫城市,已是國際上逐漸風行的藝術文化交流體驗行程,透過手中的畫筆取代攝影機的鏡頭,將雙眼所見實踐在畫紙上,同時透過網路分享讓城市的記憶藉由旅繪的作品,發展出跨國文化交融的精采火花。2013年臺灣正式在臉書上成立速寫社團,同時如雨後春筍般在臺灣各地遍地開花,速寫臺北、速寫桃園、速寫風城、速寫埔里、......速寫社團由北而南幾乎每個縣市都有了自己的臉書社群,同時在國際畫友的互訪下似乎交流也不斷地進行著,然而就在2016年第一屆亞州速寫年會在曼谷舉辦後,讓身處亞洲的各國間有了更貼近的交流,今年(2017)馬來西亞古晉接辦第二屆的亞洲速寫年會,我們有了爭取接辦的想法,臺中是臺灣第一個現代化的都市,保留了日治時期前後的大量建築,尤其在中區舊城中臺中車站、市役所、州廳、柳原教會、全安堂、臺中公園……等等,同時便利的交通設施與友善的商家與住宿環境,讓我們有了接辦大型速寫年會的基礎。因此我們努力爭取2018亞洲速寫年會在臺灣舉辦,並且配合「2018臺中世界花卉博覽會」邀請來自亞洲各國的速寫好友齊聚臺中體驗舊城互相交流。
