“Overlapped,” a TaiwanPlus and the Taiwan Overseas Compatriots Foundation Collaboration Calls for Taiwanese Americ

TAIPEI, Taiwan , May 13 /Businesswire/ - TaiwanPlus, Taiwan’s first English-language global streaming platform, has collaborated with the Taiwan Overseas Compatriots Foundation (TOCF) on a new project called “Overlapped,” featuring English-language videos created by Taiwanese American influencers. The videos are all under one minute long, aiming to explore differences and commonalities between the two cultures. The promotional trailer is available online, bringing together the two of the most roaring elements of Taiwanese and American traditions—traditional drumming and Harley Davidson motorcycles, respectively.

This press release features multimedia. View the full release here:

TaiwanPlus CEO Joanne Tsai says, “One of our central goals is to let the world hear Taiwan’s voice. The collaboration will allow us to create content in line with current trends among the American youth, and ultimately let us bring Taiwan’s to a broader audience.”

Luke Lee, CEO of the Overseas Compatriots Culture and Education Foundation, explains that the Overlapped project, with the central theme of “Connecting Places and Cultures,” aims to center itself around elements from today’s digital world, grass-roots creativity, and Taiwan from an overseas perspective. “The content can include everything from food, day-to-day life, ideology, social identity, and more,” adds Lee, “In analyzing our differences, we can also discover what brings us all together.” The first episode of the “Overlapped” series is slated to kick-off in late May.
