Taiwan Matters :如何結合草根運動和公共藝術來國際倡議

我們人不在台灣,我們可以怎樣為台灣貢獻呢?在海外,如何參與活動讓更多人認識台灣呢?

大紐約地區的台灣人們,從解嚴之前就以台灣入聯為台灣發聲、實踐國際參與。這個社群裡參與的人也持續演化。一開始的發起人已在紐約定居,現在的參與者還包含在美國出生長大的第二三代、以及青年時期搬到紐約的新一波的台灣人

活動的方法也是不斷有新的模式。今年九月,參與者還開始結合裝置藝術、戶外演講、珍奶園遊會,來讓紐約的居民、遊客更認識台灣。這次講座將會有八位參與者,分享靈感、活動工作準備好玩跟困難的地方。其中兩位建築師也會分享如何用自身的專業領域來做些公共取向的藝術。你也可以分享你覺得未來海外台灣人社群可以採取的行動跟參與策略。

Taiwan Matters : How to incorporate both grassroots movement and public art in global advocacy

How do we give back to Taiwan while we are not physically in Taiwan? 
When we are not in Taiwan, what can we do to let more people know about Taiwan?

From street rally to street fair, from demonstration to art installation, what do they have in common? Why are they connected?

As a part of the movement to bring more awareness for Taiwan to New Yorkers during the month of September when world leaders convene in the Big Apple for the annual United Nations General Assembly, a group of volunteers worked tirelessly to bring a series of events together to engage in such effort as Taiwan is excluded from the United Nations.

Taiwanese in the New York area have been advocating UN membership for Taiwan and participating in global advocacy since during the martial law era. 

Taiwan, a vibrant democracy in east Asia and a strong ally of the USA, is the only country in the world systematically barred from participating in the global arena. The movement to recognize Taiwan as Taiwan can be traced back as early as the 50's and continues to present day. As the years pass, the activist community continues to grow and evolve. Today, younger activists are comprised of 2nd/3rd generation Taiwanese American as well as recent migrants who moved to New York for school or work. 

The organizers have also been experimenting new formats in advocacy. Past September, they’ve incorporated public art, outdoor speaker sessions, even a bubble tea street festival to let residents and tourists in New York to learn about Taiwan and its people. 

How do they do it? Why do they do it?

There will be eight volunteers in this upcoming panel. They will share their experiences in making these things happen. Two of them are architects, who will share how they have used their professional skills to create art to raise awareness. You can also come and share what other strategies and campaigns we can use in the future. 

Come to this interactive workshop, where volunteers for each of the events shares their views and find out the reasons behind their work to bring justice for Taiwan!

★ 最感人之作 ★
★ 一塊見證他們的生命騎跡 ★

「孩子從來的第一天就知道自己要回家」

一個雲林西螺小鎮的育幼院要挑戰1200公里的單車環島,貌似不可能的任務,對他們來說卻是每個暑假的例行公事。信義育幼院,去年還曾到中國完成3000公里的騎跡壯舉。用盡全力一步步踩踏向前,他們沒有退路,只能向前,因為目標不只是環島路途的終點,也通往回家的路。

育幼院的孩子來自四面八方,卻都有個難以回去的家。而環島旅途就像一場魔法,悄悄地改變了參與者,除了肉體上的疲累,孩子們踩踏過的,是不能改變的過去。

他們,選擇定義自己的未來。

這不只是一個單車環島的故事。抵達終點的那一刻,或許你也能找到繼續向前的力量。

【關於電影】
「孩子從來的第一天就知道自己要回家」——前院長吳文輝

「我可以回家嗎?」電話的這頭,提問的僅僅是個年幼的孩子。一個看似理所當然的請求,卻是許多孩子難以達成的夢想。雲林縣私立信義育幼院收容無家可歸的孩子,這裡不是孤兒院,也不是收容所,前院長吳文輝堅信,孩子總有一天能回家。

孩子的父母,有的吸毒、家暴、患有精神疾病,失去照顧孩子的能力,才送到育幼院來。原生家庭的影響,讓他們不同於一般同齡小孩,個性好強、防禦心重、甚至自我放棄,懷疑自己生在世界上的價值。

吳文輝認為,育幼院不能一輩子保護孩子,他們終將要離開。育幼院能做的,是讓孩子的腳步更加自信。他們爬玉山,2007年開始每年利用暑假騎單車環島,在未破曉前醒來,日落時暫歇,自己洗衣服、擦拭車子,學會珍惜,學著面對失敗,再重新爬起。這些孩子不能決定出生在哪個家庭,但至少可以決定未來的命運。

環島中,雖然大家的路徑一致,孩子卻各懷心事。經過嘉義,有的孩子惦念著母親;路過南投,有的孩子還故意脫隊,想直接騎回家。就算摔倒了,也堅決不上接送車,因為人生的起步已經比別人晚,這一次再不跟上,就要被「當掉」了⋯⋯。

「這裡的孩子甚至比大人還像大人」——監製李怡潔

拍攝緣起僅是無心插柳。團隊透過朋友介紹認識了信義育幼院,跟他們一起踏上環島旅途。驚訝地發現,孩子因為這場冒險,個性起了明顯的變化,讓團隊深受感動。原本預設是短片的篇幅,因為孩子的勇敢及啟發,加上群眾募資獲得了46萬元、115人的支持響應,讓他們決定將這富有教育意義的題材演變成長片。

李怡潔坦言,剛開始接觸孩子時,自己預設了很多立場,導致跟他們互動起來綁手綁腳,怕一不小心造成二次傷害。反而是跟孩子相處的過程中,他們主動吐露自己的故事。但這些故事絕不是美好的童話,有時太過真實殘酷,甚至讓人不知道如何回應,她卻發現孩子一片坦然。當孩子願意正視自己的過去,最需要的,僅是被當成一般人對待。他們需要保護,但是不是像動物一樣被關起來。讓團隊漸漸放下預設的擔心,自在地與孩子相處。

李怡潔回憶起,在育幼院有一個很調皮的男孩,以捉弄、挑釁人為樂。環島的拍攝期間,由於團隊運氣不好,狀況連連,承受很大壓力。某一個晚上,男孩看她心情不好,收起平時嘻笑的臉色,主動關心她,還安慰道:「事情都會過去的,沒關係。」男孩默默陪在她身邊的那個晚上,李怡潔覺得孩子比她還成熟。

「我還跟小朋友學怎麼洗衣服!」——導演周抱樸

除了心理上的成熟,讓導演周抱樸最驚訝的就是孩子獨立生活的能力。最小的孩子才八歲,跟著大家環島騎單車,每一哩路都自己出力往前。晚上睡在教室的桌上、在禮堂打地鋪,甚至連衣服都用手洗。導演笑說,他從小就是被寵壞的孩子,當看到小朋友六歲就用手洗衣服是一件不可置信的事,還去跟小朋友學洗衣服的訣竅。
