Join us for a stimulating discussion around three dynamic festivals from across the globe. Three festival directors offer us a glimpse into their respective worlds. What makes each festival unique? What kind of challenges do they face? What are their proudest accomplishments? Where do they fit within their communities? What’s behind their one-of-a-kind characteristics?
- Mr. Wookhyun Sun (South Korea), Director, Chuncheon International Puppet Festival
