TCCIA was founded in 2013, consisted of professionals and entrepreneurs in related fields. Which is a NGO recognized by the government, holding a post of the bridge between Taipei and international culture. Introducing the art, music, architecture and so on to communicate out and out with government agencies, foreign institution in Taiwan and the citizen. TCCIA function in four main fields: exhibition of art, performance of music, fashion and design, architecture and placemaking. Expecting to introduce the newest concept or system from the world to our great capital,Taipei embracing the widest cultural vision.
台北文化創意協會成立於2013年，由相關領域的企業主與專業人士組成， 是一個政府認可的民間組織，主要任務是擔任台北市與國外的文化橋梁， 引進海外的藝術、音樂、建築設計等與台灣政府機構、駐台單位或民間 最完整的交流。 協會以四大主題運作：藝術策展 音樂表演 、時尚與設計 建築與地方創生。 冀望引進國際最新的觀念或系統，讓首善之都的台北擁有最廣的文化視野。
Before established TCCIA, I always kept my eyes on curating and design. I had some piecemeal
challenged and accepted new concepts, but I knew that there is something unfulfilled. Not until
I read a book
in an old bookstore at downtown, that my world opened up.
The book is about urban planning in Japanese colonization period.In August 1990,Japanese colonization started an urban planning called ‘Taipei city town plan’in Taiwan. Influenced by mainstream ‘travaux haussmanniens’, the population planning of Taipei City was six hundred thousand people. Japanese introduced the latest concept into Taipei City at that time. In this plan, they built up spacious streets and avenue, wide park and square, new sewer, fountain and canal. The plan committed to build Taipei City as an Asia version of Paris. Hardware development can be build in decades. But the software of humanist spirit can not do it at once. In the light of this, TCCIA has an indestructible goal to built this city as an Asia version of Paris.
I expect this association act as a bridge between Taipei city and international artistic ＆cultural programs, introduced a complete system and great activities. Besides, I sincerely hope that though this platform, all aspirants who have same goal as TCCIA, everyone could join us and participate in this great plan.
1900年8月「台北市城內市區計畫」是台灣日治時期第一個實行的都市計畫，當時規畫台北市的人口數量為60萬人，受當時 主流奧斯曼計畫(travaux haussmanniens)的影響，日本將當時最先進的概念引進台北市。計畫中修建寬敞的街道、林蔭道 、大的公園和廣場、新的下水道，噴泉和建設水渠，簡單的說就是希望將台北市構建成一個亞洲的”小巴黎”。硬體規劃的成 形或許數十年可成，但是存在於城市中人文軟性的一面，決不是一蹴可及，建構亞洲小巴黎，就成為TCCIA堅不可摧的宗旨 。我希望協會可以成為台北市與國際藝文的橋樑，引進完整的系統與優質的活動在這城市之中。也希望藉此一平台吸引更多 有志於建構”小巴黎_台北”的人士，一同參與這偉大的百年計畫。

You must have heard this story: A lazy person who lived in chaos, received
a beautiful flower by coincidence. Since then, his life has changed. He first
found out a long-kept vase covered with dust, and wiped the dirty desk
carefully. For aesthetic reasons, he cleaned up his room. In order to
commensurate the beautiful flower and spotless room. He then groomed
and well-dressed himself. And even changed his mentality, became a
Art is to the city is being the medium of constructing the great culture,
regardless of value, it’s like the flower. Every city needs art, curation
helps people to develop insight and even habits for art appreciation.
Without restrictions or rules, trying to become a partner
with time. Culture of beauty could be narrated slowly, also the stunning of a
city could be seen and been proud of.

Although out steps reflect the lifestyle wasn’t the first, but it still somehow proves the urgency of
modern cities is fear in competitive. How to live in an ideal and balance life? Try to find an average
speed between rapid strain of the city and the quiet and soothing life. I believe that those who live in
the cities can play an important lubricant role if they try to get close to the art and cultural
Art performing combines diverse forms such as music, dance, drama, literature, and vision. Demonstrate
aesthetic creativity and humanity through group interaction. Moreover, by appreciation and
participation, also with deepening the interaction and mutual trust between people, it’s an important
experience for civil society to improve the quality of citizens.
A great city’s culture and art exhibition activities always show their profound inclusiveness! It is
every relative art and culture activities’ expectation and goal to help native and foreign art
activities emit sparks and ripples during their interactions. From traditional to contemporary fields,
performing arts around the world constantly changes and innovate, which bring to the diachronic
transition. Meanwhile, with the advancement of nowadays information communication channels, the
phenomenon of rapid cultural exchange occurs all over the world, and form synchronic cross-cultural
displays among different performing art genres. These are also the main point that every performing
researcher is focusing on.
Taipei Cultural and Creative International Association look forward to bring the art and cultural life
that contains multiracials, variation, and inclusiveness to Taipei citizens. Furthermore, TCCIA wants to
stimulate the interaction between Taipei’s art activities and every other places around the world. So,
make the foreign native, and perhaps native will also have the chance to be foreign!
Where are you from?
Lots of strangers might respond as the city name without hesitation;
Life is a seesaw battle between Flaneur and rapid march. Passing by a lot of cities; gathering different
kinds of people. Under the collision of tradition and technology. A blending between new and old
lifestyles, Humanities are always more impressive than natural style.
Fashion is to the city is not like firework, however is more like a huge spotlight with its strong and
rich imagination, trying to talk about a local story or even to promote the city.
Therefore, the smell of the air or the representative color might become an important basis to focus on
Fashion is always the key to look back, while searching memories in quick image.
Where are you from?
It’s not always about building a house while mentioning architecture, as if it’s not always about
sick, taking medicine or seeing a doctor, when talking about medical science. Therefore, the
architecture thing is not only belongs to those professional man. Everyone can care about architecture,
talk about architecture, or even know well about architecture.
Imagine there is a group of children start to be curious about the material, the color, the shape or
even the scale of the flowerbed and washstand. Trying to give their own pleased imagination. Thereby,
sprout the initial link between people and public environment. Also start to think about architecture
and take a small step in social participation.
If couples can talk about not only their love stories but also how their future house like or how
pleasing their street style looks. That would add pheromones in the city which makes all these
relationships ahead forward, and ‘more meliorism’. Moreover, when the magic happens in the night, they
would know if it’s the exact romance they want in such a space, in this case, it’s going to be much more
meaningful about reproduction. If everyone come and talk about architecture, it might be a nice chance
for everyone to return to the innocence of children and regenerate curiosity about the world. After that
the streets may start to be more beautiful, the city would become even lovely, also there might be more
and more lovers!
