Teaming up for culture

New Zealand and South Korea are forging an artistic alliance with a film co-production treaty signed in September 27 and the forthcoming New Zealand Cultural Diplomacy International Program which will be held over three days in April 29. The Program will be the first and largest New Zealand event in Korea and will take place in Seoul. A preview event, ‘Celebrating New Zealand’ held this month “allowed guests to get a quick glimpse of New Zealand culture, which is expected to widen perspectives of the island country to Koreans, about which little is known other than it is an English-speaking country.” New Zealand Ambassador Jane Coombs called the film treaty “a true milestone” in Korea-New Zealand relations.
