Studies on theories related to practice-led art and design have been conducted for several years in Taiwan. The practice of an art program should be based on practicality. Furthermore, a practical program must have social and cultural significance with a broad vision to become a topic of conversation. Therefore, teachers of art education are responsible for turning abstract theoretical concepts into practical actions for students to overcome the problems faced in real-world learning. The process of learning may yield the power of affecting change through knowledge. Moreover, the Taiwanese ministries of education and technology have recently emphasized the social responsibility of universities and expected that higher education students can propose social programs for various human concerns and perform academic innovation to solve crucial social issues in Taiwan. Consequently, an 18-month social activity study was conducted. Students were grouped to explore the agricultural culture and the problems encountered in the towns of Yunlin County. The purposes of this study were: (1) To identify college students’ concerns toward local culture by applying practice-led program ideas and (2) To plan an art design curriculum on the basis of the local culture with a primary focus on social practice. The following results were obtained: (1) Programs based on practice and local culture develop students’ abilities related to cultural discovery, technological application, social innovation, and group care. (2) Programs based on social practice should stress planning, the learning community, and teachers and learners.

Keywords:local culture, practice-led research, problem-based learning, social practice, university art and design education
