The Trans-cultural Network Festival was held for the first time in Korea in 2014 to spread cultural diversity in Korean society where relevant activities had not been established yet.
In the 2nd Trans-cultural Network Festival, we would like to conduct academic programs and exhibitions to introduce international culture Issue activities and studies as part of the network program with overseas trans-cultural artists and resolve challenges that Korean art currently faces through the cases of overseas countries embracing diversity earlier than us.
Also, we are planning to hold a cross-cultural workshop with performing artists from three countries, Nepal, Philippine, and Mongolia. The artists invited to the festival will have workshops with migrants’ communities in Korea and minority groups, and create a new performance together to have its premier during the festival.
