The National Center for Traditional Arts (NCFTA), formed in January 2002, is an organization with the prime responsibilities of cultivating contemporary talents of traditional arts. Traditional arts, rooted in the civil society, are the wisdom of our predecessors’ life knowledge and the significant cultural heritage of our country. To ensure their transmission to future generations, NCFTA emphasizes on the overall planning, protection, investigation, research, conservation, and development of the nation’s traditional arts.
NCFTA has been working on absorbing diverse and unique elements of traditional arts to conduct further studies, creations and applications. The three professional performing groups: the GuoGuang Opera Company, the Taiwan Bangzi Opera Company and the National Chinese Orchestra Taiwan, also make their endeavors to be outstanding throughout the country and overseas, making Taiwan proud.
