THE KOREAN SPIRIT AND CULTURE PROJECT

This event will take place Sunday, November 5th, 1:00 pm (AFTER setting the clocks back!) in the Abbot Public Library, Lower Level Meeting Room.

The Abbot Library is delighted to, again, welcome The Korean Spirit and Culture Project to the Marblehead community!

Once known as the Land of the Morning Calm, Korea currently has one of the 12 largest economies in the world and is predicted to be the eighth largest by 2030. The Korean Spirit and Culture Project (KSCPP), based in New York, is a not-for-profit organization that was formed in September 2005 to promote Korean history and culture to the wider world. KSCPP is designed to introduce Korea’s long and rich artistic history, the spirit of its people, and its cultural values. In appreciation for the United States' support for Korea during the Korean War and in the years that followed, KSCPP has held 1800 complimentary presentations throughout the country so far.

The program, on Sunday, November 5th, at Marblehead's Abbot Library, will include two short documentary films. One of the documentaries will focus on King Sejong the Great, a truly enlightened monarch from 15th century Korea. His motto was, “The duty of a king is to love his people. That is all.” With this belief, King Sejong initiated numerous cultural achievements and scientific inventions to improve the welfare of his people. The second film depicts the impressive modern-day achievements of Korea.

In addition, there will be a reenactment of the traditional Korean wedding ceremony, in beautiful traditional costume.

Following the program, traditional Korean meals will be served. Works of art, including paintings, objects, and costumes, will be on display.

The Korean Cultural Event will be enjoyed by all ages. Families with children age 7 and up are welcome. Please join us for a very special celebration of Korean culture!

You may sign up for this program, in advance, at the Library's Main Desk or by calling 781-631-1481. ... See more
