To cultivate the diverse development of Taiwanese literature and respond to evolving linguistic trends, the National Culture and Arts Foundation (NCAF) initiated the granted project of "National Languages Writing" in 2024. This project aims to broaden the spectrum of native language literary genres, enhance the production of high-quality literary works, and establish traditions within native language literature.

In 1996, NCAF launched the arts and cultural awards subsidy program, dedicated to creating a conducive environment for cultural and artistic presentations, while also fostering the preservation and development of the distinctive cultural and linguistic heritage of diverse communities.

With the implementation of the National Language Development Act in 2019, government authorities initiated subsidy policies to preserve and revitalize native languages. Consequently, NCAF will collaborate with other entities to foster a rich and diverse linguistic landscape in Taiwan, ranging from creative works in native languages to expanding support for the ecosystem of native language literature.

Since its establishment in 2003, the National Museum of Taiwan Literature (NMTL) has been promoting native language literature. It organized the "Native Language Literature Special Exhibition Series 1 and 2" in 2005 and 2008, and the "Taiwan Literature Exhibition of Mother Languages" from 2010 to 2015. These efforts aim to enrich the appreciation of indigenous native language literature within the context of Taiwanese literature.

This forum, jointly organized by NCAF and NMTL, in collaboration with the Hakka Affairs Council and the Council of Indigenous Peoples, invites representatives from other nations with comparable language policies and implementation experiences to engage in exchanges and share insights. Thematic sessions, based on policies and initiatives in native language creation, utilization, and language development by NCAF and various agencies/institutions, also encompass discussions on the practical implementation of native language education, local experiences, ecological observations, as well as different artistic creations and international perspectives. Through dialogue, it aims to cultivate new momentum for future native language creations.
