Chapter 12 Culture & Art

Taipei City’s development of culture and the arts has adopted the defining position of “taking local culture to heart, embracing a global vision, building a sustainable future for culture.” The Taipei City Government has completed the restructuring and reshaping of the Taipei Cultural Foundation; it is promoting the implementation of an L-shaped cultural and creative industry development corridor; it has established a unique Culture and Creativity Area; and has begun four major new initiatives: a Culture and Creativity Street, a Creativity Market, a Cultural and Creative Industry Park and the establishment of the Taipei Film Commission. Regrettably, Grass Mountain Chateau was destroyed by fire. The controversy surrounding the temporary designation of Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall as a historical site prompted the Taipei City Government to energetically adopt measures to protect its historical and cultural assets.
