Puppetry Art Center of Taipei

Organizing Institutions: Department of Cultural Affairs, Taipei City Government Taipei Culture Foundation

Puppetry Art Center of Taipei was born from a passion for the art of puppetry. In 1998, Lin Ching-fu, chairman of the Taiyuan Arts and Culture Foundation, donated his personal collection of puppets, which he had gathered over several decades, to the Taipei City Government, in the hope of establishing a venue where these puppets could be preserved and exhibited in perpetuity.

On August 7, 2004, the brand new Puppetry Art Center of Taipei, dedicated exclusively to the display, performance, teaching, and collection of puppets and puppetry, was opened next to the CPCity Living Mall, the biggest shopping mall in East Asia.

The Puppetry Art Center of Taipei combines contemporary, topic based innovative development with rich cultural deposits of a traditional classical foundation, featuring both classical and epochal sentiments. Taiwan's unique puppetry aesthetics are combined with life in various aspects through performances, exhibitions, art education, international communication, interlibrary cooperation and community creation etc, while gradually branching out, allowing the story, literature, music, visual art, language, and culture of Taiwan to become more familiar to new generations through puppetry, thereby making a connection to the world.
