One big Korean festival

Standard

I can’t speak for other Brazilian cities, but as far as I can tell, there are not really a lot of Korea-related exhibitions here in São Paulo. Now I really regret not going to London’s Korean Cultural Centre while in there, ‘cause they have such an amazing events’ calendar!Anyway, this weekend there’ll be a festival of Korean Culture here in the city and I’m super excited to check some of the attractions. According to the press release, the festival’s goal is to divulge the Korean culture among Brazilians. The event is promoted by the Korean Association in Brazil and will also celebrate the fact that Bom Retiro, a neighbourhood in central São Paulo, has recently been officially recognised by the government as a Korean culture hub in the city.Pottery, visual arts, painting and caligraphy will be some of the main attractions. They’ll also have workshops for kids and, obviously, lots of traditional food. Yum! I’m badly craving some kimchi.The event will take place on the 21st and 22nd of May, from 11.00 to 19.00, at Oficina Oswald de Andrade (Rua Três Rios, 363 e Rua Lubavitch - Bom Retiro).Check out more posts from this collaboration HERE.Check out the other collaborators’ blogs here.Check out The Korea Blog!
