In the cultural and creative sector, there are many successful cases of international partnerships that are both groundbreaking and inspiring. To encourage such partnerships among Taiwanese and overseas cultural establishments, the Rainbow Initiative provides funding in amounts between NT$3 million and NT$10 million to multinational and multi-disciplinary collaborative projects.
Because culture is as diverse and multifaceted as the rainbow, the Rainbow Initiative hopes to encourage multinational cooperation in content production, art, community development, cultural assets, handicrafts, comics and animation, film, television and pop music, or any cross-disciplinary combination of these fields.
The Ministry holds the belief that multinational cultural collaboration would infuse the international cultural landscape with Taiwan’s grassroots concepts and approaches, thereby increasing the global visibility of the nation’s lively creative efforts and breakthroughs.
Please note that foreign applicants must partner up with a Taiwanese establishment and that half of the planned activities must take place in Taiwan. More information can be found here.
