Don’t know where to go to cool off in the searing summer heat? Come to the Youth Development Office (YDO) to blow off steam and recharge your batteries! The United Nations passed a resolution in 1999 designating August 12 each year as the International Youth Day. In celebrating this day, YDO has designed a series of activities to let the youths enjoy a fun and artistic summer vacation!

According to the YDO, in supporting the theme of this year’s International Youth Day “Transforming Education”, and to celebrate the 5th anniversary of the office, a series of expansive learning activities will be held from August 1 to 17. In particular, the centerpiece activity is the “Dance! Spirit of Taiwan” cultural and performing arts career experience sharing activity scheduled for 14:00-16:00 on August 17 (Saturday). T.S.D has been invited to present a lecture and performance that combines Jiajiang culture with western street dance.

At the same time, the “Drawing Singing Insect Illustrations on Postcards Using Colored Pencils” event was organized on August 5 by ecological illustrator Huang Han-yao, who demonstrated to the youths how to draw various parts of the insect, get close to Mother Nature, and make their own postcards. From August 5 to 6, the “Birth of a Producer” pop music industry experience will be conducted by Real from FIR and other musicians to help you find your way while pursuing a career in music. Additionally, the event will be streamed live on YDO’s Facebook page from 15:30-17:30 on August 6.

Other arts and cultural learning activities include: “Technology and Art in Harmony!” one-day DIY workshop on August 9; “2019 Art and Culture Theme Exhibition – My Daily Taipei” opening press conference, lecture, and activity from August 9 to 11; “2019 Write a Theme Song for Yourself – Young Musicians’ Lyric-writing Workshop” from August 12 to 14.

Furthermore, from August 1 to 17, time-limited student special offers will be launched at the Ikari Coffee Y17 store on 1F, Shanghai Kitchen Renai store on B1F, and Hana Show Space on 10F. You can expect more super value concessions and promotions in the future! For more activity and registration-related details, please refer to the official website of YDO.
