From the event description, proudly presented by UBC Ulsan Broadcasting Corporation and City of Ulsan:
The Hangeul Culture and Arts Festival is a citizen participatory art festival that encompasses the historical, traditional, and literary values of Hangeul. Centering around the original downtown area in Jung-gu, Ulsan, and the Memorial Hall of Oesol Choi Hyun-bae (the greatest Hangeul research scholar), and the University of Ulsan for conducting performances, art exhibitions, academics, and workshop programs related to Hangeul are held, including the opening ceremony.
Since the 4th Hangeul Culture and Arts Festival in 2015, Hangeul typography and Hangeul calligraphy contests have been held nationwide and are trying to promote the ‘Hangeul-centered city Ulsan’ brand. In particular, it operates a ‘Hangeul Tayo’ bus campaign project that connects the main event site, Jung-gu original city center, and Oesol Choi Hyun Bae’s memorial hall, and operates customized programs for children such as a Hangeul playground.
