Kim Bong Jun: Born in a period of political and cultural upheaval and transformation in Korea, Kim Bong Jun’s 40+ years of sculpture, painting, stories and indigenous cultural work around folk traditions, myths, ceremonies and basic human rights have culminated in a people’s movement back to a land-based culture and an awakening of a global consciousness. Founder of the Museum of Mythology in Korea, Kim Bong Jun now 70 years old, seeks to share his original works, journey and vision with an international audience and build meaningful relationships.

Che Sehyun is a Future Ancient storyteller and Corean cultural worker in traditional music and dance, as well as film and public art. @CheSehyun
