Speech Title: Research on Forest Health Care and Service Design

Abstract: In the context of a Healthy China and Rural Rejuvenation, the forest health care industry is actively supported by national policies, but the growth of current forest health care bases is still in its early stages, and many problems exist. On the one hand, service products have ambiguous characteristics and obvious homogenization, indicating a lack of consideration for users' diverse needs; on the other hand, the overall service process is immature, affecting user stickiness and evaluation of forest health care bases and recreation service products. This paper explores the characteristics and needs of forest health care user groups from the standpoint of service design, and converts user needs into visible services using a user-centered approach, which not only broadens the application scope of service design, but also improves the return rate of users and the praise rate of forest health care, and provides suggestions and experiences for further forest health care industry improvement to achieve Multi-win has a commercial and social value.

Speech Title: Research on the Driving Development Planning and Design of Cultural Gene Attributes of Rural Museum Pavilions.

Abstract: In the context of rural revitalization, to realize the revitalization of rural culture, due to the museum's own attributes, the construction of rural museums conforms to the requirements of the times. However, in the development process of rural museums, the phenomenon of developing in the direction of "low configuration" of urban museums is currently occurring. The fundamental reason is that they have insufficient awareness of their own traditional culture and lack of cultural confidence.However cultural genes are the core of national cultural confidence. As the carrier and dissemination field of history and culture, the museum is existing as a symbol of local culture. Cultural genes are the basic transmission unit within the cultural system, which makes the performance characteristics of museums also affected by cultural genes. Through the stability and variability of genes, cultural genes are activated and materialized, and the development path of rural museums is explored to enhance local cultural confidence.

Speech Title: New Museum Theory: Transforming the Way Museums Collect, Preserve, and Educate.

Abstract: What have museums been and how are they transforming themselves today and for the future? A world without museums in unimaginable. How and why are they so important in today’s world? How do museums today challenge longstanding power differentials and cope with expanded understandings of the role of art in today’s world.? Why does every major city consider it important to have a museum that helps “put it on the map” for visitors and what are some of the implications and results of this kind of investment? These are some of the questions that are addressed in this well illustrated talk that travels around the world with examples of new approaches to age-old issues about what art is, how it should be presented and preserved, and what we can learn about the enduring power and relevance of heritage, creative expression and material culture in today’s rapidly changing and globalizing world.

Speech Title: Art and Labor: Rethinking Artistic Work in a Post-Pandemic World

Abstract: Artists have been amongst the categories that have suffered the most from the economic crisis due to COVID-19. Artists' «portfolio careers», generally based on freelancing and self-employment not protected by regulations and welfare, are one of the main reasons of this financial emergency. Artists’ odd forms of employment are rooted in a peculiar understanding of artistic work, which I call artistic work exceptionalism (AWE). AWE sees artistic work as essentially different from regular jobs, and finds its conceptual roots in western philosophy, which depicts making art as the opposite of regular jobs. In this talk, I take issue with AWE. By placing emphasis on the heretofore neglected relationship between art and work, I argue that, in principle, making art is in continuity with other forms of employment. I call this view artistic work normalism (AWN). In defending AWN, my goal is not to desecrate artists' occupation. Quite the contrary, my theoretical framework stems from a desire to recognize the social value of creativity and its exercise. What artists do may very well a positive impact on our everyday lives as what bakers, plumbers, or lawyers do. By being a corrective to AWE, AWN aims at promoting artists’ well-being, the exercise of creative, and a widespread access to art and art education.
