GUWAHATI, June 22 � A team of artists, students, designers, musicians from South Korea is all set to visit Guwahati in the first week of July to explore all opportunities for collaboration with local creative practitioners.
The initiative has been undertaken by The Research and Innovation Ashram, Guwahati.
According to Shankar Barua of The Research and Innovation Ashram, the South Korean team will also visit Shillong.
�This will be an arts and culture Roadshow from South Korea starting on July 6. The team is in pursuit of interactions and engagement with the local creative community of North East India,� said Barua.
Comprising a variegated team of 15 creative practitioners and curators from South Korea, the Roadshow flows directly from the earlier exploratory visit of a much smaller cultural delegation, led by Natalie Boseul Shin, to Guwahati and Shillong in August, 2013. And both together represent a larger ongoing effort to establish a robust and direct parallel-track of cultural engagement and diplomacy between South Korea and North East India.
The three-fold agenda of the visiting Roadshow will be to experience as much as possible with the local people, place, and culture, spend as much time as possible with local creative practitioners of all description, essay ad hoc arts actions in the course of the visit, in collaboration with local creative practitioners.
