Korea Arts Management Service (KAMS) / Performing Arts Market in Seoul (PAMS)
The Performing Arts Market in Seoul (PAMS) is an international platform that takes place every October under the organization of the Korea Arts Management Service, with support from the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism. Its aim is to promote creation and production activity in the performing arts and encourage rational distribution and overseas expansion. In addition to being a channel for the distribution of finished performances, PAMS has also provided a wealth of opportunities for communication, sharing, and cooperation. With the running theme of “Creative Cooperation_Conception to Circulation,” it has focused attention on the role of the performing arts professionals working organically throughout this process.
