‘Seoulites, Read and Lead’ is a cultural reading campaign operated since the establishment of SFAC in 2004. The project aims to break the impression that reading is boring by offering various new programs which combine culture with reading.
Rather than reading alone in a closed space, the campaign offers various programs where numerous people can read together in an open space and enjoy exchange. Through such programs, the campaign aims to develop new contents to promote reading while offering various opportunities to strengthen capabilities through regional communities such as libraries.

Designated as the 2010 Design Capital of the world, Seoul is a place as extravagant and energetic as any place in the world. Yet there are still under-privileged areas within the city where lower-income classes do not have the privilege of experiencing cultural benefits.
