Asian Cultural Council Taiwan Foundation (ACCTF) is 20 years old this year. What a well built and healthy organization!!

This foundation was inspired and established based on the friendship between the Rockefeller family and myself. We both appreciate the value and recognize the significance of culture in our societies. Hand in hand and shoulder to shoulder, the ACCTF in Taipei and ACC in New York have been travelling a wonderful journey together.

In the past 2 decades, we have worked together to sponsor young and talented artists from Taiwan to venture out to interact and commingle with their peers overseas. At the same time, we have extended proper hospitality to a wide range of artists from around the world. Time passes in the blink of an eye: as our grantees' projects evolve, the scope of ACCTF's program continues to grow as well. All in all, ACCTF persists in maintaining the same passion and care towards culture and fostering our partnership with ACC. The journey continues.
