Updated: Nov 26, 2022

Q : Can you justify the reason and use of the annual fee and subscription fee of 50,000 won and 50,000 won respectively?


A : All dues must be used for projects planned to achieve our mission, and are used to promote those projects. All expenses spent will be disclosed to members at the annual general meeting.


Q: Could you be a bit more specific about "public interest activities"?

A: If you look at our business introduction on our homepage, you will have a great understanding. All of our public interest activities are disclosed on the website.

Currently, we have submitted a report to the UN Human Rights Council on the Korean government's policies related to migrants' cultural rights, and a campaign is underway.

In addition, we are working to improve the legal system to apply the Artists' Rights Protection Act and the Artists Welfare Act to migrant artists.

1. Public interest campaign for expansion of cultural diversity policy

2. Education and workshops for foreign artists and art college students

3. Exchange projects for domestic and international exhibitions, performances, workshops, art projects, etc.

4. Providing Information through homepage operation and newsletter publication, etc.

Q: How much annual and subscription fees are used for various activities such as marketing, lawyers, business expenses, board member and president salaries?

A: We do not use marketing or attorney fees. All members are active as volunteers. There is no separate revenue business. We are a non-profit organization.


Q: Does the organization have physical locations for members?

A: There is a base space in Yeongdeungpo. This will be disclosed to members when conducting workshops with members in the future.


Q: What are the criteria for membership registration?

Above all, it is impossible to join our association with anyone who runs or is involved in an unethical business for profit.


Q: What are the rules and obligations that members must “stick to”? Besides paying a fee and disclosing sensitive personally identifiable information?

Q: What security measures are in place to keep personally identifiable member digital copies and potential member identities safe from bad actors?
