Bureau of Cultural Affairs, Taoyuan City Government
The City Government of Taoyuan has committed itself to preserve the culture of old military villages for veterans for almost 30 years. Matsu New Village was listed as a historical site in 2004. The City Government conducted renovation and re-use to convert it into a cultural creativity park. The use of both hardware and software helps establish the “Taoyuan Arts Cinema”. Business operators in the cultural creativity industry also take residency at the park to organize cultural exhibitions, movie festivals, old military villages festivals and other arts and cultural activities. The efforts preserve the local culture and cultivate the content of the cultural creativity park.
