    Seoul Theater Center


    Seoul’s Hub of Theater Creation Ecosystem
    Formerly used as the Community Service Center for Hyehwa-dong, Seoul Theater Center has been a specialized creation space for theater in Daehak-ro since its remodeling and reopening in 2007. Another round of remodeling work is still ongoing, and the facility is scheduled to reopen in November 2022. A temporary office facility is located in Changgyeonggung-ro, as the center contributes to the stabilization of the theater ecosystem and helps the creative activities of theater artists while serving as a window of communication connecting theater artists and the audience through a webzine. The facility is composed of office space for the operation of the Seoul Theater Center and the Academy Room, which is used as a meeting space.
