Taiwan Cultural Center in Paris
Centre culturel de Taiwan à Paris

The Taiwan Cultural Center in Paris was established in January 1994 as Taiwan's second-ever overseas cultural center following the 1990 launch of the Taipei Cultural Center in New York.


The Center serves as a bridge introducing Taiwan’s arts and culture to European audiences and as a global platform for promoting cultural discourse and professional collaboration in the arts.

Following the Ministry of Culture's recent expansion in Europe with new offices set up in Berlin, London, Madrid, and Moscow, the Center now focuses on Taiwan-centric cultural exchanges with the nations of Belgium, France, Luxemburg, Switzerland, and the Netherlands.
