Better Together – Free Cultural Events

0

For newcomers and seasoned residents looking to make new connections through enticing cultural events, Better Together is for you.


The program aims to facilitate the meeting of Daegu’s foreign and Korean residents to share each other’s culture. Many of the events focus on exploring and experiencing different facets of Korean culture. Some of the previous activities include tours of areas in Daegu and nearby villages and towns, participating in Daegu’s Colorful annual parade, partaking in temple stays, taking music and cooking classes, and celebrating the Lunar New Year (설날).

 

Oh, and did we mention each activity is free of charge?!

Better Together was launched in 2016 by the City of Daegu in collaboration with the Art Factory Cheong-chun. Daegu City Hall sponsors the program while the Art Factory organizes and executes each event. There are approximately 6 programs held each year, starting in March.

Oh, and did we mention each activity is free of charge?!

Each activity is usually held on the weekend and starts in the morning.

Typically, each program starts off by meeting at the Art Factory and participants are shuttled to the specific location of that day’s activity. I’ve participated in several programs and always walked away feeling refreshed from having met interesting foreigners and Koreans while getting my fill of Korean culture. Each activity is usually held on the weekend and starts in the morning.

To join the program, a simple application to become a ‘member’ needs to be filled out. Once accepted, you can expect emails alerting you of upcoming activities. If you’d like to partake in any event, you must notify the Art Factory of your intention. The Art Factory should start the process of recruiting participants for the 2018 program soon. The best way to get in touch is through email (ccart2012@daum.net).

Start your year in Daegu on the right note and join the Better Together community!
