Arts Council Korea is pleased to announce an open call for young emerging artists around the world to participate International Residency Deep in the Mountains, celebrating the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympic Games. Deep in the Mountains, an international performing & visual arts residency program certified by PyeongChang Culture Olympic Games, is organized as a part of nurturing culture projects.
Running under the slogan of 2018 PyeongChang Olympic Games “Passion Connected,” Deep in the Mountains consists of two major parts out of its 40-day programme; one is touring around PyeongChang, the host city of the 2018 Winter Olympic games and Gangwon-do Province, which will help participants deepen their understanding of nature and cultural aspects of Korea. And the other is a residency activity such as creating artworks, collaborating with fellow resident artists. This international residency programme is also initiated to support artists to encourage creative projects or art making that converges and encompasses diverse genres of arts and culture. Additionally, participating artists are invited to some unique opportunities such as networking with local residents and art professionals in Korea, to attend academic programmes and workshops. Artworks produced during Deep in the Mountains residency will be presented both in PyeongChang and Seoul as forms of performance, exhibition, video, and publication.
Artists around the world are invited to submit proposals to join Deep in the Mountains, that pursue peace and harmony in the spirit of Olympic Games and that endeavour to connect people nations, regions, and tradition with the present through arts.
