Seoul Art Space Yeonhui


A Writers’ Nest in Seoul  Breeding Global Literature

Seoul Art Space Yeonhui is Seoul’s first creative space specializing in literature. It’s a part of the art space programs of the public organization, Seoul Foundation for Arts and Culture(SFAC). It has been established on the 5th of November, 2009 on a site formerly belonging to The City History Compilation Committee.
On the 6,915 sq. meter site (the ground-level area is 1,480 sq. meters in total), there are 4 tiled-roof buildings, an outdoor stage and a trail through pine-woods. Located in a quiet residential area, the space is nestled in an enchanting natural landscape in the urban center of Seoul.
As a residence exclusively for writers, Seoul Art Space Yeonhui aims to provide an optimal environment for writers to work in and a great chance for the public to become closer to literature.
