For the first time this year, the Council of Indigenous Peoples went to Thailand to participate in the most indicative cultural and creative exhibition in Southeast Asia, “Bangkok International Home Decoration Gifts Show”. Starting from today (17), we had set up “Ayoi Indigenous Cultural and Creative Museum” in Bangkok International Trade Exhibition Center (BITEC) for five days in a row, focusing on “Indigenous Cultural and Creative X Life Style”, gathering 8 high-quality indigenous cultural and creative brands to show the unique and rich culture of Taiwan’s Indigenous Peoples through each object.
According to the Council, the eight indigenous cultural and creative brands participating in this show includes “Sabra Andre,” which transformed the myth of Indigenous Peoples into fashionable high-end design goods, the “Wumia Culture & Creation” which narrated the indigenous traditional culture with the patterns and colors of leather carving works, the “Fashion Show” which recorded the myths and beliefs of each ethnic group with faddish T-shirts, the “WildDesign”, which passed on traditional culture and designed all kinds of ornaments with new thinking, the “Warm-stone Heart”, which made use of the local stone materials in Hualien and media materials to produce living goods, the “Malafa Glass Bead Handicraft Workshop”, which expressed the wisdom left by ancestors on the patterns of glass beads, the “Puqatan”, which promoted women’ participation in cultural and technological heritage and showed local cultural characteristics, the “LIHIYA”, which was dedicated to fashion design, adding value to culture and handmade products to create market value. They displayed small home decoration, clothing design, life accessories and decorative supplies and other diverse, rich and profound cultural context of daily life commodities.
The themed exhibition hall of “Ayoi Indigenous Cultural and Creative Center” presented the core concept of “home”, integrating the exhibitors' products into the living room and bedroom of the home, so that the visitors could experience the life style of Taiwan Indigenous Peoples at home. In addition, during the exhibition period, Chatbot (chat robot) was used to interact with on-site buyers, with digital operation and exhibition guide function, and three language versions of Chinese, English and Thai were provided to convey the stories of participating brands and more cultural and creative goods, so as to further move the native cultural and creative goods to the international stage. In order to expand the international vision of indigenous entrepreneurs, after the exhibition, 8 indigenous entrepreneurs would visit the “Thailand creative design center (TCDC)”, the design resource and talent center of Asia, to promote the opportunity of communication with local entrepreneurs and learn from the trends and business strategies of cultural entrepreneurs in different countries.
