Toji Residency Program

Programme for Supporting Creative Works and Cultural Exchanges by Foreign Writers,

Artists and Scholars



             The Toji Cultural Foundation supports work created by Korean writers, scholars and artists. Started as a seed program in the belief that writers, scholars and artists should be liberated from their busy daily lives to dedicate their time entirely to creating their works.

The numerous creative works generated by domestic cultural artists and scholars in the program have made the Toji Cultural Centre a major place for creative activities in Korea.    

             Based on the success of the domestic program, Toji Cultural Foundation in cooperation with the city of Wonju launched a new initiative in 2005, the Program for Supporting Creative Works and Cultural Exchanges by Foreign Writers, Artists and Scholars.




The new program aims to invite writers, artists and scholars from around the world to work at the Toji Cultural Centre, and promote cultural exchanges and interaction between people of all cultural backgrounds. Through such exchanges, we hope to help foreign writers, artists and scholars deepen their understanding of Korean culture, and help Korean writers, and artists and scholars widen their global perspectives and experience.




    1. Encourage various creative works by foreign writers, artists and scholars.

    2. Promote interaction between Korean and foreign writers, artists and scholars.

    3. Promote Korean cultural arts and related fields through the establishment and strengthening of a network of personal relationships and cultural exchanges that will introduce Korea and Wonju city to the rest of the world. 




             We hope that the residency programme will stimulate and replenish the creativity of writers, artists and scholars when they get to spend time to create their works, share their views and interact with each other. We also hope that in the process of their exchanges and interactions, Korea’s cultural policy and status will be promoted.

  1. Toji Foundation will invite 7-8 foreign writers, artists and scholars each year
