NCKU and Lianjiang Government's Win-win Cooperation: MOU of "Mazu Micro-College" to Promote Battlefield Transformation
Signing the Memorandum of Cooperation of "Mazu Micro-College" to promote battlefield translation
National Cheng Kung University and Lianjiang County signed a memorandum of cooperation on the "Mazu Micro College" on August 26, which will focus on the island field and include teachers in the College of Planning and Design of National Cheng Kung University, which is different from traditional campuses and entities. The structure of the curriculum is divided into disciplines. Through cross-domain professional integration, and according to the characteristics of the field and local needs, it brings in research projects in the industry, government and academia to jointly promote the innovation and development of Mazu.
Since the removal of battlefield government affairs in 1992, from the original national scenic area to the potential world heritage site, and the development of the reconstruction of historical sites in recent years, the problem of cultural translation of battlefield landscapes has always been faced. The cooperation between NCKU and Matsu began in 2007, led by Professor Chao-Ching Fu of the Department of Architecture, who devoted himself to the study of the cultural landscape of the Matsu battlefield. In 2020, the "Gazing Fortress Matsu" project was launched to participate in the historical process of rewriting the identity of Matsu's island. And drive the creation of local industries.
In 2020, President Huey-Jen Su also led nearly 60 supervisors to Matsu to hold an innovation consensus camp. "National Cheng Kung University 90th Anniversary Wine" is the product of cooperation with Matsu Winery. Signing the memorandum of cooperation at the height of "geopolitical" wrestling is of special significance.
President Su said that NCKU adheres to its mission and ideals, and today's official commitment to launch the Micro Academy is the accumulation of persistence. Lianjiang County Mayor Liu said he hoped that through cooperation, Matsu's human history, ecology, and culture could be brought into the field of life through the power of art and design. He also hoped that Matsu would become a diverse and unrestricted creative stage that could help Taiwan and the rest of the world.
Program host Professor Tay-Sheng Jeng said that National Cheng Kung University was the first institution in Taiwan's higher education history to set up a micro-college. There are 900,000 islands. If this experience is successful, the "Taiwan Experience" will be promoted and shared.
NCKU ART CENTER also held a special exhibition "Gazing Fortress Matsu", presenting the reconstruction plan of 16 military bases for translation bases that National Cheng Kung University has coordinated and implemented over the past two years, including the Matsu International Art Island Biennale in February this year, Nangan Umestone Creation issues such as the special tea room for officers and soldiers in the camp have been moved to the campus exhibition, allowing the public to experience the contemporary value of the cultural heritage of the Matsu battlefield through the translation of architecture.
