The 4th ACC Asia Story Idea Contest 2024

June 05, 2024

The National Asian Cultural Center of Korea (ACC) is developing ACC original theatrical works by seeking ideas through this open contest.

The title of the contest is "SHARE US YOUR DREAMS" and its detail theme is "Dream Laid in the City". 

What kind of dreams do you encounter in your cities?

Dreaming alone or dreaming side by side, private dreams and public dreams,  slow dreams and strong dreams, dreams left behind, and dreams that move....

The ACC turns the pages to dig out ideas on various dreams that fill our spaces. 

Dreams in the past made cities and we are living inside those, making new dreams of our own. What would they become next?
