British Council Urban Futures Programme

British Council launched the arts program “Urban Futures” from 2018 for 3 years across North-East Asia, including China, Hong Kong, Singapore and Taiwan.  “Urban Futures” aims to foster greater inclusion and innovation in cities through the arts.  In Taiwan, we will support cross-art institutions and practitioners to explore how art can make our cities more open, dynamic, inclusive and fit for the future. Our program themes focus on "Art & Social Activism", "Art, Science & Digital Innovation", "Art & Disability" and "Art & Ageing". In November 2018, we proudly present the UK film "Inside Einstein’s Mind" at the 2018 Taiwan European Film Festival in Taiwan. This will also be the second "Art, Science & Digital Innovation" project this year.
