English and South Korean arts exchange collaboration

Sandra Giorgetti

A cultural exchange programme between Britain and South Korea is launched this month

It provides funding for 21 performing and visual arts projects in South Korea and England to a value of £1.4m (2 billion KRW) and promotes opportunities for English arts organisations in South Korea.

The programme will bring work to new audiences, arts exchanges, residency exchanges and collaboration on new work. Examples include a piece of world class Korean music theatre at next year's LIFT and Brighton Festival.

The programme is part of the Arts Council's £18m investment in international exchange, partnership and growth and has been supported by the British Council in Korea.
