Annual Festival of the Arts

The SJA Jeju Annual Festival of the Arts is a celebration of our students’ and teachers’ love of the visual and performing arts. It merges with our Artists in Residence (AiR) program that brings world-class artists from multiple disciplines to our school. 

Developed as a yearly event and based on the concept that art should be collaborative, build community, and foster innovation, the Festival brings together the Elementary, Middle and High Schools so that students of different ages can combine their talents and exhibit their progress in  achieving their artistic dreams. 

Our Festival reflects the growing trend in contemporary art that tasks artists with raising the  awareness of critical issues in society, which encourages the examination of our place in a complex,
ever-changing world, enabling our students to become active, compassionate members of the global community.

The Festival in 2019 has 2 professional visiting artists (1 fine artist and 1 filmmaker) coming to work with our SJA Jeju artistic team in developing art projects that culminate with showings and performances on May 24th, 2019. The Festival’s motto is “Imagination is everything."
