Daejeon Arts Center opened a new horizon in culture and arts with its majestic opening on October 1, 2003. As the most prized possession of the city of Daejeon, transforming itself into a cultural and artistic city in Korea, it has been playing its role most ardently.
As a cultural and artistic space equipped with advanced systems, it has contributed to raising the overall standard of living for the citizens of Daejeon by providing more opportunities of enjoying culture and art as well as chances for invaluable leisure.
Providing schedules and programs reflecting the seasons has allowed the center to become the subject of much benchmarking by other performance groups.
This shows how successful the Daejeon Arts Center has become. Based on our detailed analysis of the preferences of the audience, we have come up with more audience-oriented performances(in series) which has helped raise the satisfaction of the audience in addition to securing a wider spectrum of audience that will translate into regular attendance. Furthermore, we have remained dedicated to house-produced opera and plays which remain somewhat of a challenge for performance halls not blessed with the expertise and specialized personnel such as ours.
Our accumulation of knowledge in production has enabled us to expand our sphere of involvement to outside the Daejeon area to help us put on performances in association with nearby cities and to contribute to balanced promotion and growth of regional culture and art.
We have also been involved in several meaningful projects such as the music academy for the identification and education of the gifted, culture and art education to provide opportunities to understanding and appreciating art, performance training program to nurture specialists in performance arts, school music concerts and open house schemes to allow the public to gain understanding of performance etiquettes and general knowledge through back stage tours, YODJAC that offers young people to perform in orchestras and gain stage experience as well as SNAC which involves selecting young musicians to perform on stage as a means to prepare them for the professional world of music.
Culture and art in life will have serious implications in the 21st century. Daejeon Arts Center intends to accommodate such a demand and shall work to improve the overall standard of living for the citizens of Daejeon through its commitment to a high standard in performance.
