The Gwangju Culture & Art Center (광주문화예술회관) is a 161,000-square-meter cultural center, promoting the city as a Mecca of culture and arts in Asia.
Located in the heart of the city, it’s been built on the site of the Gwangju Uprising, which is widely considered the birthplace of the modern democratic movement in South Korea and an important place for civil resistance in Asia. More than 200 people may have died in the unrest. Ever since, Gwangju has been trying to change into a place that’s internationally recognized for its cultural relevance.
