Inspired by the common slogan “No Borders, No Nations" in the international migrant worker movement, Music No Borders, the fourth week’s music session hosted by members from the local punk collective Suck Glue Boys, aims to break barriers by encouraging more interactions between artists, musicians, and audience. Music No Borders will utilize Music Room as a temporary gathering spot, in which members of Sundialll will invite musicians, dancers, and audience to explore cross-cultural artistic expressions of Indo-TW in the form of performances and beyond.
