Arts Council Korea Main Center

640, Bitgaram-ro, Naju-si, Jeollanam-do

  • In 2014 ARKO’s main center moved south from Seoul to Naju in Jeollanam-do. As the Daehakro area where ARKO was established had served as the center of Korea’s arts and culture, we will play our role in developing the cultural hub in Naju Bitgaram Innovative City.

Artist House

3, Dongsung-gil, Jongno-gu, Seoul

  • As the main center of ARKO from 1976 to 2010, the name of the building was changed to ‘Artist House’ in December 2010 and it has been used as a place for artists to create and communicate. While keeping its historical symbolism as Korea’s national historic site no. 278, we hope it continues to be a place where creative activities flourish and everyone can enjoy the pleasure of arts and culture.
