Episode Description

Earlier this year the American Institute in Taiwan and the Taiwan Design Center partnered up to launch the American Innovation Center in downtown Taipei’s Songshan Cultural and Creative Park.

The Center offers access to design equipment like scanners and 3D printers along with lectures, workshops, and DIY activities, all of which are free and open to the public.

For this episode of Taiwan Talk we sit down with representatives from both AIT and TDC to talk about the center and what they hope the partnership will achieve.

Guests: Taiwan Design Center Deputy CEO Oliver Lin and AIT Public Diplomacy Section Chief Joe Bookbinder


You can visit the American Innovation Center on their Facebook page.
