Discourse, Innovation and Social Entrepreneurship of Depleted Communities in Kaohsiung

Chishan, Gushan and Yancheng regions have thrived over centuries as they functioned as throughput harbors for the Port of Kaohsiung since ancient time. However, due to industrialization and the shifting of the economic centre eastward in the recent decades, these regions have gradually lost their “sense of glory.” This project, therefore, seeks to recreate glory in these regions of destitution, by operating ecological aesthetics, soundscape, creative ventures and community entrepreneurship to tell the stories of the land.
