SEOUL, Sept. 25 (Korea Bizwire) — The Seoul Metropolitan Government plans to start a project to donate and share used musical instruments with others, with the aim of creating a community where donors, repair experts, and users come together to share their love for musical instruments.
City officials announced on Tuesday the opening of a Cultural Support Center in December at the Nakwon Musical Instruments Arcade which will work as a hub for sharing musical instruments.
Anyone who owns a musical instrument that is no longer being used donate it between October 1 and November 10.
Potential donors can visit Seoul’s Beautiful Store or register online at Seoul’s M-Voting website (mvoting.seoul.go.kr).
Donated musical instruments will go through repairs at the Nakwon Arcade, and the Cultural Support Center will be in charge of sharing them.
The center will not accept recorders, tambourines, ocarinas, and other disposable instruments.
The Beautiful Store will issue a donation receipt that marks the monetary value of the donated musical instrument.
The center will begin registration recipients of the donated musical instruments in late October, prioritizing those who will participate in a series of music and educational courses.
