Connect To Change: Using Creativity To Empower Students In Taiwan
Gen.T honourees Cho Chen, the founder of Skids School, and saxophone player Tzu-Chieh Shen travelled to Bitou Elementary School, which is two hours' drive outside of Taipei, on the island's northern coast.
Chen led an artistic session, teaching the children how to draw self-portraits, in line with her stance that children must first learn to understand themselves before they can fully understand anything else. Later, Shen introduced several instruments and musical styles to the children, before treating them to a saxophone performance. Shiner Education Foundation CEO Monique Wang also invited Lawrence Yen, a supporter of the charity and owner of restaurant Gastrojoy, to serve a traditional Spanish fideuà for lunch.
