There is an ancient paper making in Xi'an,called Bai Ma paper.It is considered as the one of the 4 inventions by China.But now,it is faced with a huge problem,no man have interest in learning this technology.The village where the paper is produced called Beizhang now is not boom as the once,young men go to the big city for jobs,only the old and women stay in the hometown and making so little paper.
Our project's purpose is to save the ancient technology and help the people in Beizhang village benefit more from the Baima paper.We thought the paper has a huge market potential.By digging it's cultural value,historical value practical value and environmental value,it is possible to achieve our goal.Baima paper has two varities,one is quality writing paper,another is cheap papyrus.The quality writing paper is better than the rice paper we always use,and the papyrus has huge environmental valuse because it is made by the wasted newspaper and really cheap.
Nowadays,we have hold an outsides explore about Baima paper in Shaanxi history museum.This the first step in our plan,exploring.And next,we will make a special magazine made by Beizhang paper in order to introduce the history and story of the paper making.
We wish to find media can produce a documentary about the village and the Baima paper.The next plan in our project is to create a studio which can attract graduates,street artists,traditional artists to design new forms of the ancient paper products and to discover more material cultural heritage.By the bussiness methods,the studio can trade our ancient culture into the profit.The culture can benefit from the profit and more people will concern about Chinese history and join us.
Not only a paper studio,but also a block will be filled with our tradditional art and culture in Xi'an,just like a city agricultural landmark.This is a necessary plan for Xi'an,the most ancient city in China,it is full of the whole memory of our country.But too much modern elements full of high streets and back lanes,we need such a area contains a mixture of traddition and pop,the old one can be famous too by mixing with the popular design.
Our project based on the Baima paper and we also have ambitiou to rescue all the cultural heritage which can be throwed into the market and produce the profit,we believe that the profit we made can be well used in enlarging the benefit group.
