Technology, as a key driver of human evolution, has significantly impacted our living world and exploration spaces in recent years. Notably, the mainstreaming of virtual worlds has emerged as a vital strategy for future competitiveness. These technological advancements have transformed not only human interactions but also the way cultural arts are presented and received in the physical world. In response, artists in Taiwan's indigenous music and performing arts industries are actively seeking new roles in this dynamic landscape. This study, therefore, focuses on these industries in Taiwan and employs in-depth interviews with cultural promoters, including curators, educators, and cultural organization representatives. The aim is to gain a deeper understanding of technology's role in the promotion and innovation of culture. The findings reveal that technology plays a crucial role in cultural advancement and innovation, expanding the reach of culture and providing new methods of dissemination. However, the study also underscores the importance of using technology judiciously to preserve the authenticity of culture and maintain a balance between heritage and innovation. The successful integration of traditional and modern, local and global elements is identified as a key strategy for ensuring cultural transmission and sustainability. This research offers valuable insights for artists striving to maintain cultural resilience in the digital era and highlights the need for ongoing adaptation and integration of technology in cultural practices.
