Taiwan needs to have a more comprehensive government policy and better operation models for art institutes to promote culture and make it sustainable, a renowned Taiwanese artist told CNA recently.
Chen Rueibin (陳瑞斌), who has won 18 medals in various international piano competitions and performs worldwide, said a government-led, cross-department cultural policy is needed to make art thrive.
Taiwan is not short of top-level facilities but lacks a wholesome market to promote, for example, music, Chen said.
There are nearly 80 Steinway pianos in cultural centers and universities across Taiwan lying unused, because there are not enough concerts for pianists, Chen said.
"Promoting music is not the sole responsibility of the Culture Ministry," Chen said, stressing that it should involve other government agencies, including the Education Ministry.
The cultivation of a sense of appreciation of art and music should start at an early age, Chen said.
Local opera houses or music halls should also adopt more competitive business models, Chen said, suggesting that they could introduce season tickets, as is common practice in some foreign countries.
That way, audiences are more likely to develop long-term commitment to the art programs institutes have to offer instead of losing their interest after watching just one performance, he said.
