Chuncheon Arts Festival, The festival where every participant becomes its owner.
‘Ten spoons of rice fills a bowl(십시일반)’
This Korean saying motivated us to launch the festival and it is also what we dream of.
Chuncheon Arts Festival was launched as a donation-based festival to which planners, artists and staff members donated their time, talent and works. You, the audience of our performances, can add the last spoon of rice to the bowl.
The festival started as the Chuncheon Dance Festival in 2002. Based on the festival’s conviction the corporate body Ten Spoons was officially founded in an attempt to share good things through the arts.
Celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2021, the Chuncheon Arts Festival expanded its finance and size with its new name. With a new goal of developing into one of Korea’s representative performing arts festivals, it is renewing its determination for another two decades.
In addition to organizing the festival, Ten Spoons will pursue its artistic and public values by means of more diverse and dynamic activities including performing arts production and programs involving citizens.
In this way, the festival is prepared with everyone’s heartfelt contribution, So the more our participants, the bigger our sharing. Thanks to many of you who share the dreams of the Chuncheon Performing Arts Festival, it will further strengthen its roots while also enriching its fruits for the audience and providing them with better shade.
