Chung Hsing Paper Factory / Transforming on and on
Built in 1935 as Taiwan Business Company during the Japanese Rule, Chung Hsing Paper Factory was handed over to the nationalist government to be a government-owned unit after the war. Once Taiwan's largest paper factory, its production volume was also the largest in Southeast Asia. In 2001, the factory closed, and for the following 13 years it was never in operation. In 2014, Yilan County Government started promoting the arts and cultural industry and regional talent cultivation, and the factory was revived as an industrial heritage site.

Yilan Nu-Creators / Brewing momentum
Characterized by old industrial buildings, Chung Hsing Cultural and Creative Park tells attractive stories of the area's past. "Cultural and Creative Area 1" which focuses on talent cultivation, industry development, and community art, continues to hold annual exhibitions, video and audio programs, heritage tours, and handicrafts markets based on the factory's entrepreneurship. Craft makers and small cultural and creative teams have been invited to display their works at the park's sales area in the front. DIY classes are also held. Visitors are free to walk about in the park and immerse in its special historic atmosphere, take part in all sorts of events to learn about culture and creativity, and feel energized by art!

A Future of Creativity / Accumulating energy
With the old factory refurbished to be a cultural and creative park, Chung Hsing becomes a milestone for Yilan's cultural and creative industry. In the near future, Chung Hsing will help businesses, the government, and schools to collaborate altogether, promoting community empowerment, lifestyle aesthetics, and the cultural and creative industry at once through a match-making platform. Spreading roots locally while building up a global vision, Chung Hsing hopes to build a critical mass and bring youngsters from Yilan and other parts of the country to town. Step by step, it aims to accumulate cultural and creative energy for young talents, who are then expected to build a future of creativity for Yilan.
