AGI's special project is an important part of the congress activities. The theme for this year’s project is LOVE. It is a topical theme of great relevance and suits the venue and location of the congress. We are kindly asking all participants for this year’s special project to LOVE SEOUL.
Those who will not be able to come in September will remain in the game and are asked to send their work to be presented in the exhibition and publication.
Seoul has been the capital city of South Korea for the past 600 years, surrounded by mountains, where a large river flows through the center of the city. The city remains one of the world’s most populated with 10 million living residents, producing 9,000 tons of waste everyday and holding about 100 festivals every year. To both residents and strangers, the city is a dynamic yet chaotic and complex destination where it is sometimes hard to see, know and catch if one is not ready to see, know and catch. Our eventual goal is that Seoul becomes a city where actually many residents and visitors can easily see, know and catch. A city that we can become closer with. We also hope Seoul becomes a city where everyone continues to love in their own ways. We seek now to look back on our city now through YOUR loving eyes. To see Seoul through different perspectives and perhaps to learn ourselves, how one can love a city as well. I love Seoul.
