In the face of globalized competition, cross-industry collaboration has become an important trend for contemporary development. Cooperating and supporting, sharing resources and ideas are key to breakthrough and survival. Though in the process of cooperation may be contradiction or conflicts but co-existence after solving problems can create new opportunities.

From the Curator

This year, the International Craft Design Exhibition adopts the theme of “Crossover – Symbiosis.” The exhibition presents an inclusive view of the world’s cultures amidst the surge of globalization, searching for the possibility of coexistence against the backdrop of cultural clashes, exchanges and integration. In addition to Taiwan, participating countries include Japan, Korea, Thailand, the US, France and Denmark.
“and” stands for ‘art’, ‘nature’ and ‘design’; exemplifying tolerance and harmony embodied in “Crossover-Symbiosis”.
