Enjoy Festival –Like Weekends with “Street Art”!
As part of the “Street Art Revitalization Project,” the Seoul Foundation of Arts and Culture will hold “Street Art Season-Fall” every weekend for two months, from August 2 (Sat) to September 28 (Sun), in five major parks and streets in Seoul, including Seonyudo Park and Seoul Forest.
Street Art Season is a program of performances that is being launched by the Seoul Foundation for Arts and Culture for the first time this year. The aim of the program is to help people enjoy street art and provide opportunities for street art performing groups to put on their performances at times other than in May, September, and October, when large scale festivals are mainly held.
Street Art Season will be held in the parks and on the streets of Seoul that are frequented by Seoul citizens. In the first week of every month, performances will be held in Boramae Park, with more performances being held in Seoul Forest in the second week, Seonyudo Park in the third week, and at the DDP (Dongdaemun Design Plaza) in the fourth week. In the first two weeks of August, Street Art Season-Fall will be held on the Sinchon Yonsei-ro car-free street as well.。
A total of 15 performing groups will be participating in Street Art Season-Fall, and a wide variety of performances, such as modern dance, sand art, musicals, madang plays, and parades, will be held for Seoul citizens to enjoy.
The Seoul Foundation of Arts and Culture has designated 2014 as the first year of its revitalization of street art. Along with Street Art Season, the foundation plans to implement a variety of programs by the end of this year, including “Street Art Project Support,” workshops on producing and directing street art performances, and “Professional Training Programs.”
