Bona

MA Arts Administration and Cultural Policy

Bona studied Drama in Seoul Institutute of the Arts in South Korea and a BA in Drama at Hull University. She currently runs an arts organisation 'Theatre For All (T4A)', a registered charity which promotes community arts. Bona formed the charity whilst studying for an MA in Arts Administration and Cultural Policy. The course inspired Bona to continue working on more ambitious cultural projects. 

Bona feels that Goldsmiths taught her how to create good collaborations and realise the need to remain open to new ideas. Meeting professionals from various areas of the arts sector helped Bona build a good network contacts and motivated her to create new and exciting arts projects.

Bona also runs a hair salon, whose customers act as ideal audiences for charity concerts and are strong supporters of Theatre For All's experimental activities, demonstrating that the arts are very close to our daily lives. Bona’s current projects include the New Malden Arts Festival, charity concerts, radio webcasting, globalised exhibitions 'Why Cameras? Not Bread?' and an interest in penguins.

Ho Kyung

MA Culture Industry

"The Masters programme opened my eyes to multi-layered arts and cultural scenes, and diverse approaches to culture industry."

The MA opened my eyes to multi-layered arts and cultural scenes, and diverse approaches to culture industry. I think one of the most important experiences and achievements at Goldsmiths was rebuilding and refiring my enthusiasm for the arts and culture, extending my theoretical knowledge and encouraging me to develop potential and my own perspective in creative industry areas. Since coming back to South Korea in 2011, I've been writing a book on the context of sustainable cultural practices. I was also involved in a city regeneration research project of a local government in Korea, and I am currently managing a cultural tour programme in Seoul, Korea

Seo-hwa

MA Arts Administration and Cultural Policy

Since her undergraduate days, Seo-hwa has been working in the field of Film, Theatre, and Art, exploring different perspectives, via various means such as making films and working as a theatre administrator. At Goldsmiths, whilst studying an MA in Arts Administration and Cultural Policy that she completed in 2007, Seo-hwa was able to attend various seminars organised by the drama department and develop her skills in a British and European context.

After graduating from Goldsmiths, Seo-hwa stayed in England to intern where she discovered much about the cultural scene in Britain. Since coming back to Korea in 2009, she have worked in several international arts events such as the Uijeongbu Music Theatre festival, Delphic Games, and Hi Seoul Festival and has been very fortunate to work with renowned foreign artists and theatre companies. Seo-hwa Roh managed the performing arts competition at the Delphic games and International Programme Coordinator at the festivals. They were quite intense experiences, but she really loved being at the heart of bringing these vibrant events to fruition. Seo-hwa has always had a passion for the performing arts and love to be involved in the creative process and is looking forward to continuing her work with exciting new artists, both as a producer and through directing theatre performances.
