Introduction: Dadaocheng, a pier much closer to the downtown Taipei area, is often described as the starting point of Taiwan’s modern thought. Living in the Dadaocheng area, people with lofty ideals always have a broad view of the world and profound cultural literacy. Even under the Japanese rule from 1895 to 1945, they still promoted the New Cultural Movement.
Taiwan New Cultural Movement Memorial Hall (formerly known as Taipei Police Bureau during the period of Japanese rule) aims to restore the Dadaocheng area to its original glory. It will not only collect and showcase historical data on the New Cultural Movement, but also integrate and invigorate the Dadaocheng valuable cultural assets. Meanwhile, the memorial hall plans to turn the former residences of some important historical figures into a series of historical and cultural tours, thereby establishing itself as the “Dadaocheng historical and arts center” and building the Dadaocheng area as an open museum of cultural history. In the future, visitors can take a walk on the streets of the Dadaocheng area, listening to several stories told by cultural workers about the historical figures during the New Cultural Movement. They can also admire new contemporary literature, drama and arts, listening to new contemporary songs at the memorial hall.
