Welcome to Gwangju

Gwangju, Korea's sixth-largest city, may look like any other city but its history sets it apart: in 1980 a peaceful pro-democracy demonstration, known as the May 18 Democratic Uprising, was put down by the then military government and remains a strong part of the identity here. Gwangju also has a long history of harbouring artists and this is reflected in civic support for the arts that shines through at every turn
