Songshan Cultural and Creative Park

2018 CET-Cultural & Creative Trend Forum

 

Description

The 2018 Creative Expo Taiwan marks the 8th year of the Expo. With a focus on daily life, Creative Expo Taiwan Cultural and Creativity Trend Forum this year is devoted to discussing the trends of cultural industries and the trendy cultures in various fields. The forum, which takes place from April 19th–20th, will invite several professionals from Thailand, Japan, and Taiwan to speak on cultural and creative trends, music culture, fashion trends, crafts and design, social design, and creative licensing. Together, they will inspire all the participants to ponder their cultural contexts and spot the possibilities in there.
This year, the Expo centers on six major topics and invites the public to think and talk about cultural trends. The first day of the forum opens with the main theme of the year, "cultural and creative trends," which covers the current much discussed topics: "music culture" and "fashion trends," exploring the development of independent music and the outlook of fashion in Taiwan. The second day begins with "Crafts and Design" and "Social Design" sessions, discussing design applications in detail, and then extended to the final session, "Creative Licensing," in which speakers focus on image authorization and share their views on the positioning of the global licensing economy and the concept of brand value. Through the professionals’ experience sharing and the arrangement of panel discussion in each session, this forum provides the audience with in-depth yet approachable trend analyses and cultural perspectives, leading them to gradually understand the unique characteristics of ethnic Chinese culture after a series of dialogues, communications, and conceptualizing activities.
