People to People Through Art | A Rooftop Gathering


On the evening of October 1st the Arirang Institute held the 2nd installment of their "People to People" Networking Event series. The series seeks to facilitate networking opportunities for all those passionate and interested in the issues conerning the Korean Peninsula and East Asia.

The event took place on the lovely rooftop provided by the "A. Bed and Breakfast" located in 삼청동 overlooking Seoul, South Korea. The night opened with a solo tap dance performance by Yoon Ha Jang with exceptional works of art featured from Jung Il's "Notebook Thoughts" collection. The night concluded with an insightful and moving presentation of three documentaries focused on the Korean Peninsula. The Film Director from North Korea discussed the motivations for creating the films and his hope for their role in working towards trust, understanding, and cooperation on the Peninsula.

Again we would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who supported and helped to make this event possible. Every little bit counts, no matter how small. It truly does matter.. 

We would like to thank Let it bloom for coming and sharing their "Happy Virus Flower" with us!!!

And of course we would again like to thank Tom Kock, Director of the Redwood International Educational Center, for recently launching a new scholarship program for North Korean refugee students on the Peninsula. 

It was a great night and we would like to thank all those for coming!!!
