Teaming Up for Culture

New Zealand and South Korea are forging an artistic alliance with a film co-production treaty signed in September 2007 and the forthcoming New Zealand Cultural Diplomacy International Program which will be held over three days in April 2009. The Program will be the first and largest New Zealand event in Korea and will take place in Seoul.
