The Global Youth Culture Forum is a process and an event that relates culture to the sustainable development of Jeju. It is supported by the Jeju Special Self-Governing Province government and the Culture Committee of the world organisation of United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG), together with JITC-Jeju International Training Center, JFAC-Jeju Foundation for Arts and Culture and JURC-Jeju Urban Regeneration Center.

The Global Youth Culture Forum Jeju 2018 will be held from 29th October to 4thNovember 2018.

The Global Youth Culture Forum in 2018 aims to implement, in a very practical and illustrative way, the UCLG toolkit “Culture 21 Actions” on “culture in sustainable cities”, especially its commitment related to “Public Spaces, Urban Planning and Culture”.

The Global Youth Culture Forum in 2018 will also contribute:
           - To localize SDGs, especially Goals 8, 9 and 11
           - To promote young artists in the making of sustainable cities
           - To involve local communities in the process
           - To develop Jeju as a creative culture platform for global artists: a place where meaning is developed.
           - To establish a forum in which exchange young artists share their experiences and cooperate.

A global curator, local and international mentors as well as local and international artists and architects will be working together taking as cases of study two different neighborhoods of Jeju City: Namsung Old Town and Jeju Old Downtown.


The call for mentees is open to international artists and architects who have interest in public space and work in any art media (photography, installations, drawing, ceramics, video, performance, soundscapes, etc.).

The deadline for submissions is Tuesday, 31st July 2018.
