Tamsui is a historical town on the northern Taiwan where has been voted as the most popular tourism site five times in a row by Taiwanese. Because Tamsui has been experienced many important historical events and has beautiful landscape, there are more than seven million tourists visiting this town every year including Taiwanese and foreigners. However, the abundant tourism and highly developing real estate cause the decrease of life quality and the cultural atmosphere and it could not turn back. The town needs an alternative strategy for its further development, and the theory of creative city might be a solution. In the past, Tamsui township administration have used to spend a great deal of fund to invite local artists, students and communities to participate the activities held by the town, but it brought lots of complain because the students and community members were required to spend their leisure time to prepare. In the beginning of 2009, the township administration held a three-day master workshop and invite people from different groups, including artists, communities, schools and town staff, to develop the main agenda about the next activity for the town. Besides, three British artists from Brouhaha International (Liverpool, U.K.) were invited to give lectures and share their experience in the workshop. After all representatives share opinions from their own point of view and had lots of discussion, they decided the main theme together (Tamsui’s history and environmental protection) for the next festival and defined the duty of their own group. In addition, the way to organize the activity has been structurally changed. The township administration should play the role of resource supporter (major funding, space coordinating, paperwork, etc.) instead of dominator. Local artists were paid to help school teachers to develop projects with students, and help local residents to create projects in community center. Besides, the architecture students of Tamkang University would have projects on the site of the festival to emphasize the theme of environmental protection. A local theater company would organize an environmental theater played by Tamsui citizen, not professional actors, to interpret the Sino-French War (1884 AD-1885 AD, Tamsui was one of battlefields). Seven months later, the festival was held on September and it was extremely successful, and the environmental theater has caused a great sensation. There is a great deal of Tamsui citizen from different communities wearing the costume made by themselves to join the festival, and show their proud on the street. On the other hand, many elders (some of them are sixty or seventy years old) practiced for the environmental theater twice a week just for playing a solider fighting on battlefield, their performance showed great spirit of the community. These activities became medias offering people a reason to come out and know each other, and regain their local identity living in this town. The case becomes a great example to the other towns in Taiwan for demonstrating how a township administration could work with communities to develop activities that all participating groups are benefited. It is worth to mention that the architecture students of Tamkang University took recycled plastic bottles and bicycle frames as construction materials to create four projects. Those projects show the possibilities to apply recycled materials to construct space or environmental sculpture which does not require complex skill but still could turn out some interesting public facilities. To these tomorrow’s architects, it was a wonderful opportunities to learn how to use materials and design our environment carefully that is more important than how great the projects they had done. However, the study process and the projects would be introduced and the influence on environment would be discussed.
