Taipei Cultural Center in New York (TCC) , which was established as the first overseas office of Taiwan's Ministry of Culture in 1991, is celebrating the 30th anniversary with a series of virtual events, including an online piano concert, cinema features, and three commemorative videos throughout the second half of 2021.
Due to the pandemic, TCC is unable to invite friends from all over the world for an in-person gathering. Instead, TCC hopes to celebrate via a number of exciting virtual events. The first event will be An Evening with Taiwanese Piano Stars - Ching-Yun Hu with Young Piano Talents, co-presented by TCC, Yun International Music Foundation (YIMF), and Flushing Town Hall (FTH). The event will be broadcast live on July 31, as the opening concert of PYPA Piano Festival and as part of New York’s Flushing Town Hall online program on August 14, allowing us to share the vibrant energy of the Taiwanese artistic community.
The second event will be a virtual film series featuring seven spine-chilling ghost/horror films at the end of August , in accordance with Taiwan's Ghost Month, which is observed in the 7th month of the lunar calendar. The series, co-presented by New York Asian Film Festival, reflects the surge of Taiwanese genre films in recent years, among which horror/ghost films make up the most burgeoning one.
TCC’s mission is to support international cultural exchanges in order to introduce Taiwan’s arts and culture to audiences in North America. TCC has reached out to art museums, theaters, performing arts centers, film cinemas, festivals, curators, and presenters in the US and Canada for the past three decades. In revisiting some of its most notable past achievements, TCC will interview those who made the collaborations possible and produce video recordings to share our success and excitement.
About the Logo for TCC’s 30th Anniversary
The Taipei Cultural Center in New York (TCC), which was established in 1991, builds connections through arts and culture in New York and throughout North America. The 30th anniversary logo is inspired by the core values of our mission. The lines surrounding each letter and number, and the floating white paths created by this effect, symbolize the flow of connections and cultural exchanges. Moreover, the blossoming of the morning glory flower in the letter 'C' is dedicated to all those who have contributed to the TCC's past and present, and to those who will be contributing to our future as well.
