While development of cross-genre and interdisciplinary creation has been accelerated, we need to reconsider the meaning of existing art genres. In this program TWS has developed our open call programs to open up opportunities to introduce innovative projects that explore unique expressions by expanding their roots of genres of arts such as music, fine arts, performance, dance and so on.

16 projects selected from more than 250 entries from home and abroad, besides 4 TWS recommendation programs will be presented in series for 6 months from October 2016.
