Taiwanfest takes its annual focus on Asian culture online with its Rethink Asia program of musical performances, art presentations and keynote speeches. Indie culture is the focus when Taiwan’s legendary record label owner, music producer, festival creator and magazine publisher Jang Dal Im speaks with Canada’s Michael Hollett from NEXT Magazine and NXNE (Sun., Aug. 29).

The festival also dives into the rich history between Taiwan and South Korea and explores what it means to be Asian Canadian. Launching virtually, festival attendees can catch online performances by the Taiwanfest Orchestra and the all-female group The Tune, learn some K-pop dance moves from VYbE Dance Company or try a new recipe with Core Restaurant’s Chef Hyun.
