The Ministry of Culture has established the Rainbow Initiative to encourage local and foreign organizations to combine their professional expertise from a wide range of cultural fields and join forces on transnational and multi-disciplinary cultural projects that will promote creativity and diversity; strengthen international and regional networking; showcase the fruits of their collaboration; and demonstrate the benefits of resource-sharing networks and cross-cultural partnerships.
Please note that:
- This program will subsidize plans for multinational and multi-disciplinary collaborative cultural projects. Applications for proposals seeking funding in amounts between NT$1 million and NT$10 million are welcomed.
- Local applicants are required to find a foreign partner whose headquarters are located in another country or mainland China, Hong Kong, and Macau. Please note that over half of the planned project activities need to take place in Taiwan as well.
- Submissions for 2017 will be accepted through Sept. 30, 2016. Proposals must be new and projects may not begin until after a contract with the Ministry has been signed. Application forms may be downloaded from here. Questions may be directed to the Department of Cultural Exchanges at (+886)-2-8512-6719, or by email email@example.com.
