Wanjung Wei – Chinese Taipei / ExCom Candidacy

As a dance critic who believes that social change can be brought about by theater critics, I am thrilled to present my candidacy for the AICT-IATC Executive Committee. With over 7 years of experience as the Executive of International Organisation of Scenographers, Theatre Architects and Technicians (OISTAT) and since 2022 as the President of IATC Taiwan, I bring a wealth of knowledge in running NGOs, which I believe will greatly benefit AICT-IATC’s growth.

I am passionate about diversity and inclusion, recognizing the importance of amplifying voices from Asia and women within our community. As President of IATC Taiwan, I have worked tirelessly to create platforms for theater critics to exchange ideas both nationally and internationally, leading to increased membership and a more diverse dialogue. As the Executive Director of OISTAT, I’ve supervised more than ten international projects across three continents.

Additionally, I understand the significance of collaboration with other NGOs. My experience has shown me the power of partnerships in advancing shared goals and expanding our reach. By partnering with other organizations, we can enhance our impact and advocate for the arts on a global scale.

With your support, I am committed to promoting diversity, fostering collaboration, and ensuring the continued success of AICT-IATC. Together, l believe we could create a more vibrant and inclusive global theater community.

Wanjung Wei

President of IATC Taiwan
Executive Director of OISTAT

WEI is the youngest executive director to hold the position at OISTAT since its establishment in 1968, and also the first with diplomatic training. While in her teenage years, she practiced hip -hop dancing and later transitioned to contemporary dance. With a belief in the commonality between diplomacy and performing arts of “creating dialogues in daily life,” WEI explores the relationship between contemporary dance and society by writing dance critiques, with a particular focus on feminism and gender issues. In 2022, she was elected as the President of IATC Taiwan. She earned her MA degree in Arts Politics from Tisch School of the Arts, New York University.
