Korean American Historical Society (KAHS), in collaboration with Korean American Artists Association of Washington, is excited to host once again the Korean arts and culture room (“Experience Korea!”).

It will be at the 27th Annual Shoreline Arts Festival on Saturday, June 24, 2017 and Sunday, June 25, 2017, inside the Bridge Room at Shoreline Center at 18560 1st Avenue NE, Shoreline 98155.

Come experience the beauty, accessibility, and warmth of Korean culture and arts in a safe, fun, and inviting environment. 

“Experience Korea!” is an interactive room where visitors can learn about Korean culture and arts through fun, hands-on activities that involve all the senses.

Guests can learn to play the game of Yut Nori, read Korean children's books, make traditional Korean clothing (Jong-y-Jup-Ki), write their names in Korean (HanGul), dress up in traditional Korean clothing (HanBok), play traditional musical instruments (AkGi), and much more.

While the kids are engaged, parents can relax, read about Korean history and culture, partake in tasty treats and drinks which are served on traditional holidays, or participate in the hands-on activities as well.

We will have many fun activities and demonstrations in the room for the whole family.

In addition, people are taking notice of Korean culture as K-Pop and Korean drama are becoming a worldwide phenomenon! There will be a K-Pop singing and performance competition for non-Koreans, hosted by SeattleN (Korean online magazine), on the mainstage Saturday, June 24, from 6pm to 9pm.

Experience Korea! Is sponsored by the Consulate General of the Republic of Korea in Seattle, Korean American Artists Association of Washington, Korean American Health Professionals Association (KAHPA), Korean American Historical Society, Seattle-Washington State Korean Association, and Shoreline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council.

Korean American Historical Society is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to enriching the collective memory of Koreans living in the United States and abroad and promoting awareness and pride in the ethnic heritage and experience of Koreans.

Hosted by the Shorline-Lake Forest Park Arts Council, Shoreline Arts Festival (SAF) is an annual community event which attracts over 10,000 persons of diverse age and background over a course of two days. SAF highlights arts and culture, as well as various ethnic cultural arts of Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Middle Eastern, and more.
