Nantou County is a mountainous region set in beautiful surroundings and home to many diverse cultures. This has resulted in its rich cultural foundations as well as the high level of artistry in its local Taiwanese culture. Its geography however places it in the heart of Taiwan, so it suffers from financial constraints caused by its relatively isolated location and agriculture based economy.
Due to these factors, it takes even more courage and perseverance to overcome the many difficulties in order to help culture take root. In order to promote art and culture, the vibrant culture of Nantou County is needed to provide the driving force so that the local vernacular culture and heritage can be preserved and popularized, boosting Nantou County’s energy. It is the Culture Bureau’s mission to support these developments while taking into account the geography, environment, culture, traditions, special industries and related arts & cultural activities.
We hope to create a culture unique to Nantou County’s people so that the people can understand and treasure Nantou.
