ASIA PUBLIC CULTURE ASSOCIATION


BASED IN TAIWAN, EMPOWER THE REGION. BASED IN ASIA, EMPOWER THE WORLD.



ABOUT US


Asia Public Culture Association (APCA) is a non-governmental organisation established in Taiwan in January 2017.

We do research, online courses, creativity workshops, conference and international exchange to support civil rights activists in our region.

We value the vital role of civil society in deepening and localising the universal values to societies with different political systems, religions and cultures. We also pay close attention to the challenge they are encountering today.

We work to create open space for civil society activists in our region to exchange ideas and their firsthand experiences in order to boost new ideas and discourses derived from the bottom-up experience.

We believe that this fruitful output could further strengthen the motivation and creativity of activists in our region to address the global challenges that the universal values are facing today.
