Chimei New Museum, Tainan. Chimei Museum is a private museum owned by Taiwan's industry giant, Chimei Corporation. The museum was established by Shi-Wen Long, the founder of Chimei Corporation, in 1992 to house thousands of his private collections of Western arts, musical instruments, natural history, arms and armor, antiquities and other artifacts. He opens the museum to fulfill his intention to provide the citizens with the finest masterpieces from different civilizations and cultures without leaving Taiwan. When it first started, the collections were placed in Chimei's office building. A few years later, one building complex was turned into a museum which is free for public. In 2013 the museum stops its operation and all the collections were moved to the newly constructed museum in a 10-hectare area. The new museum, known as Chimei New Museum, plans to operate in 2015. ICCC 2014 will have the honor to organize one day of its conference in the new building. ICCC 2014 conference participants will be among the first guests to experience what the new museum has to offer.



Ten Drum Cultural Village, Tainan. Ten Drum Culture Village is an art village which was established in 2007. It was once an abandoned sugar refinery which was turned into the first international arts village with drum theme in Asia. Its 5 hectare  area has 16 old-fashioned warehouses from the Japanese period which were refurbished into performance halls, drum museum,  drum experience center, mini-theater, two outdoor theaters, lodging, restaurant, and cafe. It has an impressive night view and many activities to attend to. Its very own performing group, the Ten Drum Art Percussion Group, has been invited to perform in international cultural festivals world-wide and aspires to promote Taiwanese culture through its drum performance.
