Korea-UK Connection 2010: Producers’ Research Visit

Visiting Arts is working in partnership with the Korea Arts Management Service (KAMS) to encourage and support collaborative exchange in the performing arts between the two countries.

"We would like to express our gratitude to all effort of you and all staff from VA. It’s really great chance for Korean participants to learn what’s going on in UK and helpful for them to draw the draft of their project. For me, even though it was ninth times to visit Edinburgh, this time was meaningful in other way. I sent your best regards to Mr. PARK, a president of KAMS and he felt very sorry missing this UK visit and hope to meet you in Seoul this Oct. We, KAMS are very happy to put the first step on the long-term project and hope to develop in the future. " JiSun Park, Manager, International Development Dept./ Strategic,Korea Arts Management Service
