::: Home  About Us  Who We Are  

The Ministry of Culture of the Republic of China (Taiwan) was established on May 20, 2012. 

As a member of the Executive Yuan, the Ministry oversees and cultivates Taiwan’s soft power in the areas of arts and humanities, community development, crafts industry, cultural exchanges across the Taiwan Strait, international cultural participation, heritage, literature and publishing, living aesthetics, TV, cinema, and pop music.

The logo of the Ministry is an indigo-dyed morning glory. The indigenous flower symbolizes a trumpet heralding the coming of a new renaissance, in which cultural resources and aesthetics permeate all corners of the nation. The morning glory also represents the grassroots tenacity of Taiwan’s diverse culture, a yearning for the positivity, simplicity, and warmth of earlier days, and a return to collective roots and values.
