International Exchange
KACES expands the value of arts and culture education at the international level through networking and explores visions and prospects for arts education by sharing knowledge and experiences through global partnerships.

ODA Projects

ODA (Official Development Assistance) projects involve sending arts and culture education professionals, including Korean teaching artists, to Vietnam and Indonesia. Our programs in this area encompass not only education for children and youth, but also professional development for local educators and related personnel. We seek to empower our partner countries to hold onto their cultural identities and pursue stronger competitiveness for the long term.
