KSIF to collaborate with Hanji Preservation and Utilization Foundation

 
  1. Collaboration towards the globalization and revitalization of the traditional Hanji culture both home and abroad.

KSIF (President LEE Hae-Young) and HPUF (President LEE Bae-Yong) concluded a business agreement to spread and revitalize the Hanji culture.

HPUF was founded to publicize the tradition and excellence of Hanji, traditional Korean paper, and is in the process of registering Hanji as a UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage.

The business agreement was concluded on April 26th as part of the project to introduce the Korean language and Korean culture to a wider global audience by promoting and revitalizing the Hanji culture, an important element of Korean culture.

The business agreement specified areas of collaboration including △the revitalization of the Hanji culture both at home and abroad, △the registration of Hanji and its culture as a UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage, and △ the spread of the Korean language and the Korean culture.

The Foundation hopes to continue with the development of business areas that incorporate Hanji, starting with an installation of a traditional Korean space using Hanji within the Foundation. President LEE Hae-Young of KSIF mentioned, “KSIF will leverage this opportunity to actively publicize Hanji, a proud cultural heritage of Korea, around the globe.”
