Would you be interested in organizing program at Kotae Expo? Do you have the perfect workshop in mind or are there theories about your favorite series gathering dust in your desk drawer that you would like to discuss in a discussion circle? Apply to Kotae Expo as a program organizer!

The program of Kotae Expo should fit the theme of Japanese and Korean popular culture. The main focus of the event is on the participatory program, but there will also be some talk programs. We encourage you to think outside the box – whether it’s a fashion show or dance rehearsals, we want to hear what exactly you would like to come and do!


Application form for program organizers can be found here.

The additional application period for program organizers ends on May 15th but applications will be already processed during the application period.


Take your time planning your program – applying is not a speed race. Think carefully about what kind of program you want to organize and from what angle you want to approach the topic. The more concretely you can tell us about the content of your program idea, the easier it is for us to imagine you holding it in Kotae!

If you need advice or have any questions, send an email to sui-crow(a)kotae.fi – we will be happy to help!
