Created in cooperation with several international cultural organizations, the Taiwan Digital Culture Center (TDCC) is a high-level program designed by Taichung City Government to work towards a "smart city" vision. The program aims to build a digital city museum that integrates virtual networks and physical space via collaboration with local and international cultural institutions, for the purpose of preserving Taiwanese cultural heritage and promoting cultural innovation.
Under the theme of "Link and Linkage", the International Digital Culture Forum includes a first-day workshop and will take place August 11-13, 2017 in the Taichung Municipal Building's Assembly Hall, providing a platform for local and international professionals and the TDCC's potential target audience to exchange experiences.
