Zhengbin Harbour Museum of Art is a studio that was conceived, promoted, and brought to life by a group of young people from Keelung, taking concepts of art, design, and local culture and using the experience economy, cultural and creative products, and design services to foster local consciousness, dialogue, and creative action. The founder, Lin Shu-hao, may not have been born and raised in Keelung, but his love for the sea has inspired him to devote himself to this local creative effort which has not only given the struggling fishing port of Zhengbin a new lease on life, but also helped bring Taiwan's island people into a closer relationship with the ocean around them.
