International Youth Arts Festival

Event Name

2022 International Youth Arts Festival (2022 ITAF)

Meaning of the event

The International Youth Arts Festival, held in Busan, a green smart city for teenagers around the world, is an event that allows teenagers around the world to experience various cultural arts in person, not one-off. And through this, we have held a venue for artistic creativity every year, starting with the International Youth Eoulnuri Festival in 2021.
By holding the 2022 International Youth Art Festival this year, it will serve as a bridge for teenagers around the world to grow as future artists.
