Culture, Art Nature uses love

Grass Book House (小草书屋), which appeared in Sanxia’s old street around two years ago, cares for high-risk teens who have been subject to domestic violence or involved in fights, gangs or drugs. Providing a safe space for these kids of elementary and junior high school age to study and eat an evening meal, the house acts as a second home.

However, like grass, kids grow fast and they must prepare themselves to compete in society; however, the current learning environment of Grass Book House is unable to meet the future needs of these kids. This year, in an attempt to address this problem, founder of Culture Art and Nature (CAN), Jeffery Lin (林峻丞), set up Grass Life Skills Academy, which is aimed at helping junior high and high school kids find a new direction in life.

In addition to looking after children from Sanxia who are in need of extra care, CAN is also devoted to promoting Sanxi’s unique culture, which includes indigo dyeing, DIY tofu making, and guided tours of historic sites, as well as providing spaces for various types of cultural and creative products and art exhibitions. Grass Book House provides disadvantaged kids in Sanxia with after-school care and has even put together a program to assist kids realize their dreams, while the recently established Grass Life Skills Academy, aims to equip kids with specialized skills that could help them get on in life.

在二年前三峡老街上出现了间「小草书屋」,这里面守护着一群正在就读国中小学,却曾遭受打架、帮派、吸毒与家暴威胁的高关怀学童,这里提供他们一个免费学习与吃晚餐的「家」。

但小草终将长大,书屋的学习环境已经无法满足他们未来和社会竞争的需要。于是,甘乐文创创办人林峻丞在今年成立了「青草职能学苑」,期望为国高中生找到人生新方向。

「甘乐文创」除了照顾三峡的高关怀孩童,同时致力推广三峡文化,蓝染、豆腐DIY、古蹟导览,也有各式文创商品与艺术家展演空间。「小草书屋」提供三峡弱势孩子课后照顾与圆梦计画的实践,近期筹设「青草职能学苑」,期望培养国高中生的一技之长。
