Due to the unique natural environment in Taiwan, various bamboos are widely distributed throughout the island, and the bamboo craft industry can be seen from this path, whether from a historical timeline or a response to contemporary issues, the bamboo trail from ordinary life into the halls of art.

The exhibition area will focus on the “Living Crafts and Crafts Life” goals of the Crafts Center initiative to present the connecting path of Taiwan's craftsmanship from supporting the economic bamboo industry, innovative design cooperation in bamboo art, and exploring the future of bamboo art combining contemporary technology and material experimentation. The three main themes of “Artistic Dialogue”, “International Joint Venture” and “Technology Cross-domain” present Taiwan's overall bamboo craftsmanship.
