This exhibition is open for submission to 300 universities and 10,000 young designers on both sides of the Taiwan Straits. The exhibition showcases over 200 outstanding works which are the latest achievements of the cross-strait rural revitalization of “creative design + technological innovation” and shares the wisdom and solution of cross-strait youth on rural revitalization.
In addition to the exhibition, the Cultural Industry Empowers Rural Revitalization – Cross-Straits Youth Exchange Meeting was also held on the same day. There were many leading experts and designers assembled to discuss themes including “How Cultural Industries Empower Rural Revitalization” and “The Overseas Influence of Cross-Straits Youth Creative Design Exchange”.
