The Gimhae Arts Festival is a pure arts festival that is the only one of its kind to be organized in our region. The festival not only promotes unity and cooperation among the region's artists but also increases their motivation for creativity and gives them an opportunity to display their cultural and artistic work to the public.
The Gimhae Arts Festival is sponsored by our city and is organized by the Gimhae Branch of the Federation of the Artistic and Cultural Organizations of Korea. The Gimhae branch has 8 unit-based branches, which include the Music Association of Korea, Korean Fine Arts Association, Korean Writers' Association, National Theater Association of Korea, 연예협회, Dance Association of Korea, Korean Traditional Music Association, and the Photo Artist Society of Korea. As such, the Festival has hitherto successfully discovered and nurtured many talented artists.
