Let’s see what is going on during the last weekend of July.
Last weekend’s big event was the World Human Rights Cities Forum. This weekend sees another great event going on with the World Youth Festival happening at the Arts and Culture Center (ACC) Square. There will be performances, a Youth Festival Academy, a Market, and even movie screenings! The WYF kicked off yesterday, but will go through until Saturday, July 30th. This looks like a great opportunity to spend time with family or friends in downtown Gwangju! For more information about the WYF, you can go to their official website at: http://2016wyf.com. You can also find more details by typing in “2016 World Youth Festival” in the search function on Gwangju’s Facebook page. You can also check out a previous post by Gwangju Blog’s own JD.
The last Saturday art class for July will be a special one. Guest teacher Trevor Homeniuk will lead a class on enviromental collage making. He’ll teach you how to take old magazines and make them into collage art. If you bring your own magazines and an exacto knife, then admission to this special class is only 5,000 won. If you need materials, then the class will be 8,000 won. The Saturday art classes are always held at the GIC. For directions to the GIC, please go to their website. For more info about the class, you can go to the Facebook event page here.
The Sochon Art Factory will be having their monthly event this weekend, but it will be a special one for July. It will all begin on this Friday, July 29th with a water gun festival, a concert, and a camp fire as well (there will be free camping on Friday night too). Then on Saturday, they will have their monthly flea market. Looks like another great art event this weekend! For more details about this weekend’s festivities, please go to their Facebook page.
Hey Ladies! It’s time for Loft 28’s monthly ladies night on Saturday. You know the drill: if a group of four ladies or more make a reservation, you’ll get a free bottle and a table. So go to their Facebook page right now and make that RSVP! Also, don’t forget about day drinking on the rooftop patio. It’s a great way to beat the heat in Gwangju!
Other stuff? Why of course!
Volunteer at a local animal shelter! Our furry friends need your help. Every Sunday a dedicated group of volunteers head to a local animal shelter to help out. If you would like to join them, please go to their Facebook event page to find out how.
Auditions for the next GPP production will be held next month. What will the next production be? This weekend’s hint: it’s a musical with teeth!
