[EVENT REVIEW / 후기]

Dokdo is an island located between Korea and Japan.

From a foreigner’s point of view, it may seem to be just a small territory that causes endless dispute

and conflct.

Funday Korea Networks held a Peaceful Dokdo Festival in the hope of turning this island into

a symbol of peace.

More than 120 foreign nationals participated in the festival and took time to learn about and discuss the island.

 

Also, some of the participants delivered speeches about, expressing how they feel about

the island in their native languages.

And last but not least, they created string art, which is made from colorful threads.

If it is woven incorrectly, all the threads might become twisted and need to be untied and redone.

And just like string art, even though the Dokdo issue seems to be getting worse,

we all hope that Korea and Japan can untangle the issuepeacefully very soon.

It was a beautiful event, which has a beautiful meaning to all of us.

 

독도는 일본과 한국의 사이에 위치한 섬으로 외국인들의 시각에서는 분쟁과 갈등의 시각으로 보일 수 있습니다.

이러한 편견을 조금이나마 벗어나 독도를 평화의 섬, 우리의 섬으로 생각하며 컨퍼런스를 열었습니다.

외국인이 생각하는 독도에 대해 이야기하는 시간을 가졌으며 독도가 의미하는 바를 자신들의 언어로 표현함으로써

독도의 이슈에 대해 공감하며 외국인 129명이 참석하였습니다.

독도 스트링아트를 하며 독도에 대해 얽혀있던 마음을 풀어나가고 정리해나가는 시간을 가졌습니다.
