The Cross-Cultural Engagement series invites diplomatic missions to hold exhibitions at the Asan Institute’s state-of-the-art gallery where they can showcase a variety of photos, films, and music representative of their country. Heads of mission are also invited to deliver a special lecture in the Asan Institute’s auditorium where they can introduce their country’s past, present, and future to Korean audiences. Lectures are subsequently broadcast on EBS every Tuesday night from 8:00pm.

The Asan Institute for Policy Studies is proud to help share the rich cultural traditions and heritage of other countries on Korea’s leading educational television channel. The Cross-Cultural Engagement series will enrich public understanding of other cultures as well as highlight what they share in common with Korea.
