Incheon Art Platform

Locating next to the Incheon China Town, Incheon Art Platform consists of 13 buildings erected in the 30s and 40s. These historic buildings have been renovated into creative art and design studios, education and performance halls. There are also guest houses which I think are designated for artists who want to do stay, create art work or participate in exchange programs.
