  1. Dear Tina:

    I was so happy to see you at Red Room last night.

    Now, you know we can do something if we don’t like what we see in the world. This is the essence of being the change.

    Red Room is a new culture scene in Taipei and a new fresh breeze in our metropolitan life.

    If you come 5 times and perform 1 time, you are officially a Red Roomer, not just a guest. Welcome to join this movement.

    Please share your experience with your friends or post your thoughts on your facbookor Red Room’s facebook.

    Red Room is still a young movement which needs more people like you to get involved and take action.

    I was so emotional struck by Jasmine’s solo dance, Master Sun’s unique recital performance on Li Bai’s poems, Brian’s impromptu and interactive music, Mendy’s deep listening drill and many Red Roomer’s eloquent poems recital and monologue. I was much moved by the shear talent in the Red Room.

    Please be careful, Red Room is a magic place where will rekindle your inner desire to be part of the universal creative energy and experience being alive.

    See you next month.


  2. Dear Tina:

    Dear lovers of word and sound,

    Ayesha returned for our April event, and provided a potent dosage of her presence to keep us going for a good while! For those of you who attended Timothy N. Joel’s exhibition in Dulan, I hope you enjoyed yourselves wandering the streets in your board shorts, flip flops and most comfortable of all the tasteful pink jumpsuits (Mauro).

    The Red Room is a growing community event, and we hope to continue this growth through efforts made by our members. Any suggestions, ideas and/or creative concepts should be shared immediately! If you’re not sure where to provide your input, grab someone during the event and unload or email ” please do not hesitate to write with questions, comments, feedback, desires, hopes, expectations, words!

    1. Dear Ping,

      I really appriciate for having your permition joining this club.
      Can’t wait for this.
      See you then.


  3. Dear Tina:

    You are the few people on this website that asks me how to join this amazing movement that we created at Red Room.

    Right now, Red Room is still an underground private party by invitation only.

    However, we have attracted so many brilliant international friends that Red Room is difficult to keep it as private party. It has become a movement that rivals the early stage of TED. Actually, Red Room is not TEd because it is a space to celebrate the amateurism, not so elitism as TED.

    We are all artistic in many ways. We just need to have a space to share our passion so we can push out own envelope. Red Room is a space for this deep listening and creative expression.

    Please view and let me know if you still like to join Red Room.



    1. Dear Ping,

      Thanks for your kindly reply.

      I love the idea of this club and would love to join if I’m qualified. Actually, I was amazed by the idea when you talked about it after one of your speeches last month. That’s how I notice this club and intriguer me to participate it. Hope I can have the chance joining it.

      Look forward to hearing from you soon.
