Monash University Korean Studies at the 2023 Korean Festival, Melbourne
On May 13, 2023, members of Monash University Korean Studies Research Hub and Korean Appreciation Student Association (KASA) ran a stall to celebrate the Korea-related activities of Monash students and educators at the annual Korean Festival in Federation Square, Melbourne. Drs Andy Jackson and Jessica Huynh were assisted by students from the Monash Korean Studies programme and spent the day speaking to potential students and interested members of the public about Korea, Korean Studies and life at Monash. Spectacular weather and a great schedule of events ensured a fantastic turnout on the day. Visitors who came to the stall later in the afternoon were treated to a demonstration of traditional Korean games by Xuaniss and other representatives of KASA.
Monash Korean Studies and KASA wish to express their thanks to the Consul General of the Republic of Korea Consulate in Melbourne for putting on such a successful event.
Thanks also to all our volunteers on the day!
