The Truku Music Concert is ingeniously combined with Truku traditional arts and culture. Taroko National Park Headquarters will invite a host of knitting, leather and rattan weaving craft artists, such as Uma Leather Studio, Nadolan Studio, Mwaray Studio, and Masaw Rattan Weave Workshop, to give on-site instructions. Each piece of handiwork tells the reminiscence of tribal life and presents the transcendence of the force of life of the artist. Therefore, each piece is a true collectible.

Workshops will also be held from 13:20 to 15:20 for instructors to explain the design concepts behind each work and instruct citizens to experience the fund of DIY.
