Seoul Institute of the Arts
The Seoul Institute of the Arts, founded by renowned playwright Chi Jin Yoo in 1962, is a leading arts institution in Korea, educating more than 2400 students and creative professionals in 14 different artistic disciplines.
Seoul Arts is a private, non-profit institution of higher learning located in the city of Ansan, South Korea, with a satellite campus located in Namsan, a neighborhood in downtown Seoul. A driving force in the Korean art and culture scene, the Institute has produced many well-known artists working in a variety of artistic fields. Seoul Arts has four primary goals that drive its educational and programmatic initiatives: to provide an educational environment that is both creative and global, to focus on collaboration and interdisciplinary work that preserves traditional Korean culture in new forms, to strengthen cooperation between industry and academia, and to support the integration of art and science. The Institute’s partnership with La MaMa and CultureHub enables it to better pursue these core tenants of its educational and artistic mission.
