The deadline for submissions is Tuesday, 31 July 2018. What is the Global Youth Culture Forum and how it will be developed The Global Youth Culture Forum will be a global meeting of local and international artists and architects who will be working together taking as cases of study two different neighborhoods of Jeju City: Namsung Old Town and Jeju Old Downtown. Focused on the cultural and social issues that usually are involved in contemporary urban transformations as consequence of economic and political processes, the aim of both workshops will be analyzing context in situ to work on different proposals in which art and culture are the fields of reflection and action. Joining a General Curator who will have developed the conceptual frame of the Forum, each group will be leaded by one local Mentor and one international Mentor, while it will be 20 mentees participating in each group, fifty per cent local and fifty per cent international from around the world. It is expected the equal participation between women and men. Both workshops will have an online prelude through a web and a blog which will be released on 17th September 2018 and become the online space of communication between all participants, mentors, mentees and curator to keep in touch and share ideas, materials and references related to the programs to be developed during the Forum. The Forum will end with a public presentation in which the mentees will present their proposals to artists, students, members of the media and the general public (in English). The organization and the General Curator will consider and evaluate if some of the proposals may have real production possibilities to be taken in account in the future. In addition to these two groups, there will be also a meeting point at Sanjitmuel Park & Sanjicheon Art Gallery, ruled by local artists, an eco-friendly space for young artists in which present their ideas and sale works of art and design to citizens and visitors.
