[Letters] An Asian Culture Complex with a dreamMemorable plays, pleasant music and remarkable cultural art are not exclusive properties for particular people, but an oasis of life for those who always dream for something new. Currently, the Asian Culture Complex, to be built in Gwangju, is being promoted as an oasis for cultural dreams.
People have great hopes on the project because things those artists could not do privately will happen in the Asian Culture Complex. The cultural heritage of Asia is the most valuable treasure for artists. The Asian Cultural Complex will be used for research on many scattered cultural resources and content, for the exchange of cultural art, and for the performance of those who are growing up to be professionals. The national unification exchange center, cultural resource center, cultural creation center and culture center for children will be set up at the Asian Culture Complex to accomplish these goals. Also, diverse and high-standard performances will be presented at the art theater. In short, the Asian Cultural Complex expands beyond existing cultural space of function and purpose and allows culture to spread dreams and sensations to people.
The task that needs to be solved in order to continue the dream of the Asian Cultural Complex is up to us. To follow the task, the Asian Cultural Complex needs to be built according to plan, and it must arrange its content in order to draw the world’s attention. Culture is like a tree. It does not create a forest just by planting one tree. The greenness of trees grows by fertilizing with care. The Asian Cultural Complex project needs the government’s preparation and support in order to grow as a great tree of culture.
