A celebration of Korean culture is set to captivate audiences worldwide through a series of exhibitions and performances across 17 Korean Cultural Centers in 16 countries.

The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism (MCST) announced Friday the launch of the Korean Cultural Center tour program.

By facilitating multi-country tours for these organizations, the program not only highlights outstanding Korean content but also offers a cost-effective approach to cultural exchange, maximizing outreach while minimizing costs.

The 2023 lineup for the tour includes 11 standout exhibitions and performances. The program will kick off with the “BANDI WALK: One Step Closer to Our Earth” exhibition at the Korean Cultural Center in South Africa. Running from June 3 to 카지노 Aug. 30, this media art exhibition by the Asia Culture Center Foundation explores themes related to the climate crisis, featuring an exchange between Korean and South African artists. Following South Africa, the exhibition will move to the United Arab Emirates from Oct. 1 to Nov. 15.

Another exhibition, “Far, Far Side of the World,” hosted by the Seoul Museum of Art (SeMA), will tour through Tokyo (June 5-Aug. 1), Hong Kong (Aug. 14-Oct. 5) and Osaka (Oct. 18-Nov. 30).
