21 October, Red Room Stone Soup Fundraiser 紅坊國際村募款會

2017 / 10 / 21
6:30 ~ 10:00pm
紅坊國際村募款會
Red Room International Village Fundraiser

七年多前,紅坊以一個單純的構思為起點, 創造一個”美好空間”, 為每個願意分享自我與啟想的人帶來鼓勵, 也鼓勵人人開放溫暖胸懷學習傾聽彼此。

透過想法的交流及故事的交換,這個多元社區共同創造出了一鍋萃取紅坊精神的「石頭湯」。我們達到了一個美麗又值得慶祝的里程碑。

紅坊邀請各位來賓與贊助者及來參加這場聚會,讓大家一同發展我們的生活圈、資源及機會。

跟我們慶祝的話可以享受表演、美味佳餚、及與紅坊人互動的機會。來加入我們這個充滿詩人、管家、信仰紀錄人、石匠、文士、和平締造者、酒保、小丑、聲創者、雕刻家、畫家等性格的社群。

More than seven years ago, Red Room began as a single event with a simple desire: to create a space where sharing ourselves and our inspirations would be celebrated, and where we could practice listening to others with openness and warmth.

Through the exchange of ideas and sharing of stories, this diverse community has co-created a “Stone Soup” that exemplifies our culture. We have reached a beautiful milestone worthy of celebration.

Red Room invites you to a gathering that will expand the reach, resources, and opportunities for all in our beloved community: patrons and participants alike.

Celebrate alongside us with a showcase of performances, culinary delights, and an opportunity to engage with members of the Red Room.
Join our community of bards, stewards, faith keepers, masons, scribes, peacemakers, tavern keepers, jesters, sound-scapers, sculptors, painters and many more.

In the words of our co-founder Ping Chu:

“As a successful platform for the performing arts, Red Room bridges the gap between Taiwan and the rest of the world- cultivating a melting pot of local people & expatriates.”

Stage Time & Wine origins

Charles Haines, Master of Cups, Artist and dedicated Red Roomer, shares his memory of the Red Room’s creation:

Being part of the first days of Red Room was pretty amazing. It started sitting around a table at Roma’s house. Ayesha, who is the co-founder of Red Room, presented us with her idea for the Red Room platform [at that table]. She had traveled to Taidung and she had met Ping Chu there. They got talking about what she wanted to do, which was create a listening space, and a sharing space. Ping just happened to have a place where we could do this. This partnership, which started during that meeting, led to the creation of the Red Room.

She talked with us about it after that first meeting with Ping. We started throwing around ideas about what we were going to do, and who we were going to invite, and the name of the event. We had the name Red Room, but we wanted a subtitle to give a better- nobody [knew] what Red Room [was], so we needed something to explain [it]. Manav came out of his room and said “Why don’t you call it Stage Time & Wine?” and that was it. He walked back into his room and we didn’t hear from him again. I think he was, like, eighteen at the time. His involvement with the Red Room grew progressively and he used to open each Stage Time & Wine with a poem he wrote.

I wasn’t really very much involved with the organizing of any of the events at that time. I sat in and talked about things, but it was very kind of organic that first one. We were just asking friends to come and play music. At the very first Stage Time & Wine, I worked with Manav at the bar. We had a great time together. I think it was that night that we bonded. I did not know then how much a part of my life he would become and I am so grateful that we worked together at the first Red Room bar.

Since we didn’t know whether it was going to be a onetime thing—one Stagetime & Wine– or six months, or whatever, we didn’t really plan for Red Room to be what it’s become. It’s grown every year. We definitely didn’t know when we were sitting around the table what Red Room would become.

I think, after that first one, a lot of people that were involved were so excited about it. It was their enthusiasm that encouraged Ayesha, and all of us, to do it as a once-a-month event for as long as there was an interest. Ayesha left a few months later and Roma and Manav have run with it and made it what Red Room is today.
