Hub of culture, art and youth!
Jeonju Dongmun Art Street
The origin of Dongmun Street is estimated to be around the intersection (in front of Creativity Support Center at present) before Gyeonggijeon Hall, which was made while expanding Jeonjueupseong Fortress during the Goryeo period around 1410. During the Japanese colonial era, the fortress wall was demolished, and the roads running across and through the area were built during the renovation project. The Japanese purchased the land from Koreans at a low cost and gradually moved into the fortress. Dongmun Street, along with Daejeong Street, became commercial districts in Jeonju. Dongmun Street was designated as ‘Dongmun Art Street’ through the Art Street Project in 2012 and was renovated as a hub of culture and art. It has been developed through the cooperation between local artists and residents.
Dongmun Art Street consists of theaters and exhibition halls for communication with local artists through various programs. The citizen's playground, the hub space on Art Street, comprises the Story Ground on the 1st floor, the Sound Ground is on the 2nd floor, and the Creativity Ground is on the 3rd floor. It satisfies all the recreational demands of Jeonju citizens. Do not miss the food in the bean sprout soup restaurants. Dongmun Street Festival is held every October. South from Dongmun Street, the Gyeonggijeon Hall, Taejoro, and Jeonju Hanok Village are located.
