Partnering with major museums in Taiwan and abroad, Quanta Culture & Education Foundation organizes cultural resources into themes and creates educational exhibitions suitable for junior high and elementary school students. Making use of replicas, exhibitions can be displayed in remote villages and schools located in outlying islands. By integrating aspects of art and culture into school curriculums and forming partnerships with local communities, the Foundation is able to establish a multicultural platform that promotes lifelong learning. Moreover, exhibitions also foster creative ways of teaching while encouraging students to think outside the box and share their ideas, greatly enhancing their communication skills.Breadth and Depth of Touring Exhibition Coverage

Each year, the Foundation recruits an outstanding teaching team to design creative model lesson plans, which serve as sample teaching materials and resources for schools island-wide. Lesson plans encourage schools to combine unique local characteristics with the exhibitions, forming inter-disciplinary teaching materials that broaden the students’ horizons.Exhibition Partners Collaborating with counties and cities to incorporate the power of local culture
A selection process is held annually to choose educational organizations across Taiwan to become exhibition partners. Provided with exhibition resources for one year, organizations are responsible for organizing artistic events at 10 to 16 schools in their respective cities and counties. Of those schools, four must be from areas with culturally disadvantaged backgrounds, and exhibitions must be presented in local languages to bring art closer to the lives of residents.
