This in-residence grant sponsors a group of women from South Korea (Korean Spirit and Culture promotion Project, KSCPP) to work with the 7th and 8th graders at Bristow Middle School. The mission of this group is to promote the culture of South Korea by creating lanterns with students and sharing traditional cultural elements as well as the technological advances of South Korea. The students will each build their own lantern with the guidance of one of the guests and then through a video presentation will learn about the history, culture, religion and art of the South Korean people. Students will take their own lantern home.
