The Gwanghwamun International Art Festival is back in town, from now until May 27th. It’s the 14th year artists from around the world have come together to display their work in Seoul.

More than 140 artists are involved in this year’s show. Most of the artworks have a Korean description, but the organisers have worked with a crowd-sourced translation platform called Flitto to make the info accessible in English and other languages. Visitors can download an app to help them read all the information.

There are also ongoing masterclasses and lectures by veteran artists, hands-on crafting opportunities, a movie night, and a live concert.

For more information on how to get there check the Korean Tourism Organisation page. There is an official website, but it’s in Korean only. There’s also recent photos from the event on their Facebook page.
