KACES caries out a range of public projects that provide access to quality arts and culture education to all members of society, facilitated by TAs and practitioners from various fields.

South Korea ITAC Hub
ITAC6 Mainstage Presentation

The South Korea Hub took the ITAC6 mainstage by storm, kicking off our third and final day with a bang. So Yeon Kim and JeeHye Suh introduced a group of 5 Korean Teaching Artist dancers, who led our entire plenary in a high energy exploration of 'How does dance play as a catalyst for connecting people?'
By the end of their piece, the hall was on it's feet, dancing, and following the non-verbal instructions we were given.
If you missed it (and even if you didn't), we strongly encourage you to watch the livestream footage of the performance. We dare you not to dance!

The programme by South Korea ITAC Hub will feature participatory talks and workshops by leading Korean teaching artists whose practices are centred on participatory/ communal processes within the culture and arts education sector. Following each workshop, there will be a Q&A time to articulate their reflections on working on these projects including their challenges, motivations and insights.* the session is conducted in Korean with English translation

"KACES believes now is the right time to organize the Korea ITAC Hub. In times of uncertainty, we need a creative approach at the local and global levels more than ever for TAs to bind communities. We want the Hub to be an opportunity to create a better ecosystem for Teaching Artists and the field. It will be an incubator for TAs to realize their potentials, to access best practice models, and to offer international opportunities. But what’s really important to us is creating an environment where people really feel like they can make a difference through the arts."

- Soyeon Kim, Dain Jung, and Jane Park (KACES)
