Expectations for TACPS: What is needed in Taiwanese society at present is probably a “gestalt-switch,” a fundamental change of worldview, mind-set, or an informing spirit of core values for an active reform of cultural governance. The founding of TACPS represents the rise of an independent, professional, yet grassroots, think-tank of the third sector for Taiwan’s cultural policy research. Driven by the principles of autonomy, flexibility, inclusiveness, and plurality, the TACPS strives to bring about an emerging model of cultural policy with Taiwanese characteristics. It expects to connect Taiwanese cultural policy studies with the East Asian, American, European, and global networks.
