KEB Hana Bank, a local sponsor for 2018 PyeongChang Paralympics has supported a photography exhibition that portraits disabled artists through a lens of an artist titled 11 Million Reasons to Dance. This support was made in extended contribution to tackling the public perception of disability in the society.
Sponsored by KEB Hana Bank, it was made possible for us to host the exhibition as one of the closing events of UK/Korea 2017–18 and a cultural event for 2018 PyeongChang Paralympics. The exhibition lasted for 14 days and inspired the visitors, who have described the exhibition – creative, inspiring, innovative, diverse, modern and friendly. One said “... surprised by that I could not see a disability in the photo that I am looking at. I would like to see more of this in Korea."
KEB Hana Bank also supported the promotion of the exhibition through their branch offices to send the message out on a more inclusive society. KEB Hana Bank much encouraged by what we did and now is looking at a new CSR plan on how to better engage disabled people and youth audience through cultural approaches.
