2021 International Korean Arts Conference – Seeing ‘Arts Hallyu’ from Without

Details of this conference are hard to find via Google, but posters have been circulating via email, and I’ve also seen it somewhere on Twitter, so I’m putting it here so that any early-risers can enjoy it. Available on the K-Arts TV YouTube Channel on Friday. If you can navigate the website of the Korea National Research Center for the Arts, you’ll find the notice on their bulletin board. I’m told there will be simultaneous English and Korean interpretation.
