Cultural Olympiad vanguards : From Seoul to PyeongChang

Days after the launch of the Paris 2024 Cultural Olympiad, I have been listening to podcasts on Seoul as a new global art centre and been reminded of the arts offer at the #PyeongChang2018 Winter Olympic Games.

This South Korean #CulturalOlympiad was surprising in its diversity, creativity and high quality, ranging from K-Pop concerts to major contemporary art provocations, public art and large scale media art, all of it accessible via a specially dedicated – and free – Cultural Olympiad bus (a first at the Olympics!).
