Italian design award honors Matsu Biennial 2023 Art Festival

The Matsu Biennial 2023 Art Festival has been recognized as the Iron Award winner in the Event and Happening Design Category in the latest edition of the A’ Design Award and Competition. This marks the third prestigious accolade received by the Matsu Biennial, following its recognition with the international iF Design Award and Japan’s Good Design Award.


The A’ Design Award is an international, juried design competition established to recognize and promote good designs. It helps designers worldwide to advertise, publicize, and promote their artworks. The ultimate aim of the A’ Design Award is to help develop a global appreciation and understanding for brilliant design. 


Matsu Biennial restores the suppressed voices and self-evident culture of Matsu's unique Cold War heritage and war zone administration period. Unlike typical art festivals, the Biennial is a 10-year project across 5 planned biennials to involve experts and provide integrated design solutions. Cultural governance and design thinking are made part of policymaking to advance art and education. The Biennial is a long-term cultural movement through site translation, cultural tours, and co-creation.
