So I have been severely AWOL for the last few months. Never fear, I still know what tumblr is!
I am still living in South Korea, I just have a few more things to take up my time right now, which I will eventually get around to blogging about, promise!
For now, this is what I’ve been getting up to - editing a brand new magazine for the city of Daegu.
Here is the link to our December issue. Take a look if you fancy it :)
November 9th will see an exciting, multi leveled event take place across Daegu. D’art (Daegu Art) will be comprised of three events, and will give those taking part the opportunity to explore their creative side, with like minded people within the city. Are you the type of person who is willing to throw yourself into the art and culture surrounding you? Then read on for details about the three events, and how you can take part.
If you are a skilled musician, aspiring Bon Jovi, or simply enjoy good music, then this event is for you. Taking place on the street those of a musical mind will put together a performance to remember. Practices are being held from the end of October to plan the performance, however if you are reading this in early November and wish to take part, that’s no problem! D’art need musicians who are able to play guitar, ukulele, and clavier in particular, so give them a shout if any of these are your specialty!
Daegu has numerous open air galleries, in the form of street art, to brighten it’s citizens day. Following this trend, D’art will be holding a mural painting session at Kyunbook National University (West Gate) at 4pm. All the art supplies you will need to express your image will be provided, so no need to worry about dragging your paints and brushes around the city. Even if you’re not the best artist, the work of everyone involved will come together to make something amazing, so don’t be shy about your abilities
For those fitness fanatics among us, and those who are looking to stave away the guaranteed winter weight from eating too many roadside purchased hotteoks, enjoy a bike ride throughout Daegu and its surrounding area. All you need for this event is your own bike, helmet, and the drive to complete the route. Starting from Suseong at 11am and arriving at West Gate in time for the music and art, it’s a great way to get into the spirit of D’art, and make some new friends prior to the festival itself.

My beautiful friend Emily has started her own business glamming up all the nails of Daegu. Honestly she is a genius at this, I’m already thinking of what I can have done next.
