NCKU and the National Kaohsiung Center for the Arts (Weiwuying) signed a memorandum of understanding on the morning of the 21st at the Guangfu campus. The agreement, spanning five years, aims to strengthen academic and industrial exchanges through industry-academia collaboration, sharing resources, and providing related administrative support. This collaboration is expected to facilitate projects promoting the arts, talent cultivation, academic research, and other artistic endeavors, creating a mutually beneficial partnership and expanding the artistic ecosystem in which NCKU students and faculty participate.


NCKU President, Dr. Meng-Ru Shen, personally attended the NCKU Orchestra's 2023 tour concert at the Weiwuying National Kaohsiung Center for the Arts on August 29. He was deeply moved by the students' ability to perform high-quality music on a world-class stage. President Shen stated, "Art and culture represent a way of life for me. This collaboration will expose students to real artistic venues, providing practical insights into the operation of the stage, making knowledge learning more dimensional. In the future, we hope to continue promoting artistic living and make art a way of life."


Weiwuying National Kaohsiung Center for the Arts Artistic Director, Wen-Bin Jian, expressed that Weiwuying is the "people's art center" and a place for everyone to learn and grow together. The involvement of NCKU's student music groups in the construction of Weiwuying was crucial. In this collaboration, the support of a university is essential, and they look forward to letting more people know that Weiwuying exists not only for art but also for various aspects, meanings, and people of all ages.


Located in Fengshan District, Kaohsiung City, the Weiwuying National Kaohsiung Center for the Arts, which opened in October 2018, is the world's largest single-roof integrated performance venue. It houses two theaters: the Opera House, Drama Theater, Concert Hall, and Playhouse. Weiwuying has actively developed the performing arts environment in southern Taiwan and has become an important artistic base connecting internationally. The collaboration will include a general education course called "Roaming Art" for the first semester of the 112th academic year. The course will lead nearly 80 enrolled students to Weiwuying National Kaohsiung Center for the Arts venues and backstage scenes, allowing them to listen to the largest organ in Asia and participate in sound detection experiments in the concert hall. By immersing students in artistic venues and sensory domains, the course aims to cultivate their sensitivity to the performing arts and visual aesthetics. Future collaborations will also include various performing arts promotion activities.


NCKU, celebrating its 92nd anniversary, has a rich artistic heritage despite its origins in science and engineering. To promote cultural and artistic trends, foster a humanistic and artistic vision among the campus and community, and introduce contemporary artistic trends for aesthetic education, NCKU established the Art Center in 1999. The university has been actively revitalizing the campus's artistic and cultural environment through exhibitions, performances, lectures, and other activities.


In terms of talent cultivation, NCKU's "Interdisciplinary Program in Aesthetics and Arts" has had 1,600 students enrolled since 2016. The curriculum covers absorption, appreciation, and critique, with hands-on participation in artistic practices. In academic research, NCKU's Department of Architecture Professor Yaw-Shyan Tsay, from the Acoustic Laboratory for Architecture, has collaborated with Weiwuying to conduct acoustic testing on the venue. In artistic promotion, NCKU and Weiwuying National Kaohsiung Center for the Arts jointly organized a symposium featuring the artistic directors of three national-level performance art venues – Yuan Qiu (National Taichung Theater), Yi-Ju Liu (National Theater & Concert Hall), and Wen-Bin Jian (Weiwuying National Kaohsiung Center for the Arts). The symposium, titled "The Future of Taiwanese Performing Arts," took place on November 1 at NCKU's Cheng-Xing Hall.


The signing ceremony on the 21st was held at the "NCKU Arts Center" on the Kuang-Fu Campus. The NCKU Orchestra performed the delightful "String Sextet" at the event, showcasing the rich artistic and humanistic atmosphere of NCKU's campus.
