The ONE K Campaign that has been conducted via music is going to be expanded to a larger art and culture project by combining with fine arts and music (classic).
The Action for Korea Unified (AKU) that has been organizing the ONE K Global Campaign had a MOU signing ceremony with the Korea Fine Art Association and the Music Association of Korea at the Peace Center, Mapo-gu, Seoul on September 18, and agreed to promote the joint project for the spread of the culture movement for unification. Accordingly, the AKU, the solidarity of about 800 civic groups, will cooperate with these two representative art associations to promote the culture and art project as a part of the ONE K Global Campaign that wishes for unification on the Korean Peninsula and world peace on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the March First Independence Movement in 2019.
Via a brief speech at the ceremony, co-standing president Seo Jong-hwan of AKU, who is also the current president of the Culture & Information Society (the meeting of retired public officials of relevant ministries constituting the current Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, whose former titles were Press Office, Ministry of Information and Ministry of Culture and Information) and was working for the Permanent Mission of the Republic of Korea to the UN and Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, expressed his opinion on the nation’s desire and the role of culture and art in terms of the history of the national division. President Seo, a veteran of the Vietnam War, pointed out, “There should have been a world-class culture and art piece containing a national aspiration for unification in a country with the 100-year history of the national division, but we do not have anything like that as we are living by seeking for realistic convenience.” “Let’s create the works of culture and art containing our aspiration to appeal to the world”, he emphasized.
Co-standing president Seo In-tak of AKU explained, “While the news about the Korean Peninsula makes the headlines of press media across the world, now is not a crisis but the best opportunity to gain the consensus on the unification of the Korean Peninsula, from the perspective of the process of the ONE K Global Campaign.” He stressed, “Taking this opportunity, let’s make the global campaign which can go down in the world history so as to bring the unification era.”
