Taiwanese craftsmanship and design will take the center stage at the 8th Cross-strait Cultural Industries Fair, which will run from Oct. 30 through Nov. 2 in Xiamen.
Launched in 2008, the cross-strait cultural fair aims to encourage exchanges in culture and the arts between Taiwan and mainland China. Last year, over 600 creative enterprises based in Taiwan joined the exhibition, which attracted about 260,000 visitors.
As "Craft Artwork” is a major focus of the exhibition, "Yii,” a brand established by the National Taiwan Craft Research and Development Institute, will display crafts featuring Taiwanese designs and craftsmanship, including tableware inspired by the Mid-Autumn Festival.
Shuili Snake Kiln Ceramics Cultural Park (水里蛇窯陶藝文化園區), the oldest traditional snake kiln based in Taiwan, will also join the "Craft Artwork” section. It will showcase ceramic crafts such as a barnacle-inspired teapot named "Symbiosis.”
Other themes of the exhibition this year are "Creative Design,” "Digital Content,” and "Taiwan Cultural Tourism.” Each section will present craft products, artworks, and creative designs from both sides of the Taiwan Strait.
