The arts—beautiful, powerful, meaningful.
In Asia, the arts have long thrived—
the traditional, the avant garde, and everything between.
ECF supports the arts in Asia, in many forms—
awards, preservation, conferences, and more.
The Eastern Culture Foundation is taking bold strides in the arts. From our home base in Tokyo, we cooperate with business and arts leaders to support young artists and art events.
We are working to ensure a borderless, peaceful culture in the East.
ECF has six main missions:
ECF began with inspiration from the Montblanc de la Culture Arts Patronage Award. Yoshihisa Nakano, former president of Warehouse TERRADA, formed the Montblanc-Terrada Foundation using the funds awarded by Montblanc. And now it has evolved into the ECF—dedicated to supporting the arts across the East.
