Wheelchair-bound A-wei’s regular street pitch is located outside of Gongguan MRT Station’s Exit 2 in Taipei City just next to the entrance for Taiwan National University; A-wei sells products from the social enterprise ‘Do You A Flavor (人生百味)’, which is targeted at empowering minorities. Though A-wei hawks products that are rarely sold by other vendors on the streets, including chewing gum designed by Aaron Nieh(聶永真), organic dried fruit and oolong tea, his income is still anything but stable.

Over the years, A-wei has sold chewing gum in Wanhua, been engaged in fundraising, and worked in a call center, but his dream has always been to enter the entertainment business. He simply adores performing and actively participates in musical performances that promote equality. A-wei hopes that such performances can provide the public with a better understanding of the needs and difficulties of people with disabilities in society.

身障工作難尋 街賣頭家為夢打拚

在北市捷運公館站二號出口旁的台大側門,坐著輪椅的阿緯,是關注街賣議題的社會企業「人生百味」的實習頭家,他販賣少見於街頭的商品,除了名設計師聶永真設計的口香糖之外,還有有機果乾跟烏龍茶葉,但每日收入仍不穩定。

曾經在萬華賣過口香糖,也做過公益勸募和電訪員的阿緯,他的夢想是進入演藝圈工作,熱愛表演的他參與了一齣推廣障礙者平權的歌舞劇的演出,希望透過這這齣歌舞劇,讓大眾瞭解障礙者在參與社會的實際需求與困難。
