In Hualien, Taiwan, more than thousands of the elders put rags together to create their own images and stories. These fabric collages contain the history and culture of the eastern Taiwan from the Japanese colonial period to contemporary local stories, which formulate the collective memory of this region. Founded in 1996, Nou-Li is a non-profit organization located at the Feng Tian Community in Hualien, which was also the previous Japanese Emigrant Village.
