Gachang Art Studio is a support program for artists. It's hosted by Deagu Foundation for Culture and is run with support from Daegu Metropolitan City, Art Council Korea and Daegu Metropolitan Office of Education. We offer a stable creation space to promising and emerging artists. Our goal is to invigorate creative activity and enhance art exchanges between the community and artists. Gachang Art Studio is the only creation space for contemporary arts in Daegu. We renovated Urok Elementary School, which was closed and built it into a creation space for young contemporary artists in 2007.
