NA, NA, International, United Kingdom
The United Kingdom and Korea are closer today than they have been for many years. Success in creativity and innovation will define both the UK’s and Korea’s futures.
For this reason, the slogan of UK/Korea 2017-18 is “Creative Futures” as we will present ways to forge futures for both emerging artists and new audiences in the arts and creative industries of the UK and Korea.
UK/Korea 2017-18 will share the UK’s innovation and excellence in the arts and creative industries. It will develop creative practices by fostering new approaches and pushing boundaries through artistic collaborations between artists and arts organisations from both countries.
We will showcase the best of UK dance, theatre, film, visual arts, literature, music, architecture, design, fashion and creative economy from February 2017 to March 2018 in multiple cities including Seoul, Busan, Cheongju, Jeonju and Gangneung.
It will also provide a platform to further boost the promotion of UK business, education and science in Korea, and create a platform for long term and sustainable partnerships through market development, new networks and increased mobility.
