The Seoul Metropolitan Government and the Seoul Foundation for Arts and Culture said they would invest approximately 4.2 billion won in a total of 355 arts businesses to increase the number and promotion of cultural performances and exhibitions in the capital city. The selected businesses are in the areas of theater plays, dance, music, traditional performances, interdisciplinary arts, research, visual arts and others.

The beneficiaries were selected in November last year, except for the literary field. Aspiring writers who are interested in receiving a total of 550 million won in subsidies will have to submit their applications with the SFAC next month. For more information, visit on March 2.
