The National Culture and Arts Foundation (NCAF) has started implementing the Inclusive Arts Project in 2018 to realize our overall goal: "Arts to Everyone". It aims to encourage art groups or artists to develop inclusive arts and pay attention to senior citizen concerns, as well as to support professional artistic performances/exhibitions and services/promotion projects catered to senior citizens. Groups or individuals with relevant experience or professional skills are sought for collaboration to foster the arts and culture, social welfare, and interdisciplinary education, as to make the arts accessible to more people and care for society.
Implementation of the International Projects—Taiwan-UK Collaboration by the British Council and the NCAF began in 2019, but the call for entries was suspended in 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The call for entries will resume in 2022 as the pandemic has subsided, and will aim to expand the benefits of inclusive art development through experience sharing and by adopting international practices.
Applications for the Project must be filed online between October 1 and 17, 2022. Please fill in your information at the NCAF Arts and Culture Grant Information System, and finish the document submission procedure before 23:59 on the submission deadline (Oct. 17). Image files, YouTube or Vimeo URLs, certificates, and other digital files are suggested to upload to the System.
A call for entries online information session will be held at 3:00 p.m. CST, Monday, September 19 to help interested groups to understand the spirit of the project and details about the grants. Please register in advance (URL☛ https://reurl.cc/QbRrV2).
