Penghu is an outlying island in Taiwan and a popular seaside tourist attraction, but only in the summer. The 2018 Penghu Arts Festival, under the theme “The Rising Wind”, set out to change people’s impression of the island through art and design. Promoting the winter beauty of Penghu, the festival featured local handmade art, food and travel, pictures of the locals in Penghu and international artists. In addition, there was a series of activities designed for people to explore the characteristics of Penghu’s winter and thus to revitalise the local tourism economy. This was complemented by events such as land art and a workshop, as well as a three-day local trip.
