Kaohsiung, young cultural and creative workers’ first choice.
Kaohsiung is blessed with a unique geographical environment and the profound cultural heritage, which nurtures many outstanding talents. In recent years, Kaohsiung has been faced with the issue of urban transformation and industrial upgrading. In order to attract cultural and creative talents to return to Kaohsiung, we have successively launched the "Cultural and Creative Workers Returning to Kaohsiung Project" since 2010. So far, the project has subsidized 125 workers in 61 sessions, creating rich cultural and creative achievements in Kaohsiung. In 2021, to implement Mayor Chen Chi-mai's youth policy, we have invited young cultural and creative workers to start their business in Kaohsiung by providing startup subsidy, rent subsidy, and loan reward. In addition, we launched the expanded version of "Yancheng Hamasen Youth Entrepreneurial Residency Subsidy Program" and " Huangpu Veterans Quarter Young Entrepreneur’s House", hoping to revitalize historic streets and houses and create cultural and economic values with creative ideas from the youth.
Young people have unlimited creativity, which is much needed for urban transformation and industrial upgrading. Whether it is the old town of Yancheng and Hamasen, or the old military dependents’ dormitories of Huangpu Veterans Quarter, the young generation will play an important part in their regeneration and reconstruction. We sincerely welcome aspiring young people to join our way to make Kaohsiung a cultural and creative city.
