Seoul Art Space Sindang

Overview

Seoul Art Space_Sindang is a creative atelier dedicated to craft, remodeled into 40 units from 52 unoccupied business shops inside an underground shopping center in Sindang-dong, which was built in 1971.
It is one of the arts spaces in Seoul, developed using unused facilities in downtown area under the so-called Seoul Culturenomics strategy in 2009. Sitting in the underground shopping center at an old market, the space provides workshops for young craft and design artists to boost their activities.

Different from existing national and public residency programs mainly to support fine arts, the Seoul Art Space Sindang offers a residency program for craft artists. Each year selected artists can work at a dedicated workspace for a set period time.
As a cultural hub for the community, the space serves artists for stable creation of art works and gives the citizens opportunities to expose themselves to diverse cultural programs.
