ARTWAVE-Taiwan International Arts Network

    Launched by the National Culture and Arts Foundation (NCAF), ARTWAVE-Taiwan International Arts Network is a global online platform for the connection between the Taiwanese art world and the world.

    The name ARTWAVE was inspired by the combination of TW (Taiwan), ART and the word WAVE, which denotes the geographical location of Taiwan where oceanic currents converge and international interactions bloom. In terms of its operation, ARTWAVE not only continues in developing the network formed throughout the years, it also actively seeks collaborations with domestic and foreign arts and cultural organizations in hope of creating a strong brand that promotes Taiwanese artists and their works among the international art communities.
