Taipei City New Immigrants Multicultural Community Space Development Project
The number of new immigrants has continued to rise in Taiwan, and counseling for new immigrants is now one of the main policies of Taipei City. The Taipei City Government has provided assistance to new immigrants' life, such as employment opportunity and education, teaching new immigrants the national condition and related information, thereby blending cultural diversity into a component of a multi-cultural city.
Setting up the fundamental with basic surveys and analysis of current situation
Our team catalogued the current social welfare resources of new immigrants, by going through literature review and interviewing experts, scholars, non-governmental organizations and new immigrants. Afterwards an inventory of the Taipei City current space-use of the new immigrants was made by integrating basic surveys and situation analysis to set up the fundamental concept of community living space.
Using literature discussion and interviews, our team went into the coummunity to record the current living condition of new immigrants in Taiwan, and provided assistance for immigrants in application to numerous resources, to develop community advantage.
Explore and construct the new image
To encourage new immigrants to better understand the communities, and explore the neighboring environment, community map workshop and living space concept discussion were held to construct the image of their future living space. In addition, hometown food-sharing workshop was held to exchange exotic food and cultural experiences to expand the social network of new immigrants.
Our team also organized the community space and proposed follow-up management, communication and management programs for the future.
