2019 TAIWANfest - Riding the Waves with Vietnam

Courage

Survival for many is an act of courage; to live is to find meanings in the suffering. When people are displaced and lives are detoured, the tenacity one demonstrates to survive is the essence of beauty. Painters, musicians, poets and artists love to capture this quality in people and these works often inspire others to find the strength to continue their path.

Wars often show the worst in mankind as violence is the most convenient way for the power to be gained. Like many places in Asia, Vietnam and Taiwan shared chapters of histories resisting the intruders and living under the colonizers. Time and time again, the people rise to savour their families, cultures and homeland; stories of remarkable women keeping families together resemble the vary tenacity required in survival.

What is courage really like? When does survival become art?
