Following on from the fantastic summer #SeeKoreaNext campaign, Traverse are again working with the Korea Tourism Organisation London on special virtual events and to create some more incredible Korean content.
A Korean Arts and Crafts evening with @Paperboyo
Following on from the fantastic Korean cooking evening in September, Traverse will be running three more online events, all interactive and with a Korean theme.
The first of these events will be held on 26 November and is a special event with Rich McCor (@paperboyo).
Rich will be guiding people on how to create artwork with special Hanji paper as well as talking through his process and answering questions on the incredible paper cut out photography that he shares on his Instagram channel.
All attendees in the UK will be sent a special craft pack with some paper, scissors, postcards and cut-outs designed by Rich. Please do note that this is an invitation only event, so if you’d like to come then please do let us know on this form and we’ll be in touch with how to register for the event and receive your pack.
Create Original Content
We’re looking to work with a limited number of fantastic content creators to publish some more content about Korea. This time, there are two types of post that we’ll be looking for, if you feel that you’d be a good fit for this, please do let us know your details (on the link below) and we’ll be in touch.
We’ll also be holding special events in December and January with a focus on different parts of Korean culture, so watch this space for more information on hot to take part.
In depth guides
We’re looking for content creators to publish some in-depth guides (c. 2000 words) on their blogs. To take part in this, you will need to have expert knowledge in one of the topics that Korea are looking to cover and to have first-hand experience from the last few years in Korea.
The themes and regions that we’re looking to cover with these in-depth guides are:
- Vegan Food
- Winter Travel
- Night-time Korean Tourism
- Walking, Cycling and Hiking
- Korea as a Stopover
- UNESCO Sites
- Jeonju and other ‘slow cities’
- Gwangju and nearby day trips
- Gangneung, Andong or Mokpo
- Incheon and Gyeonggi-do
- Other ‘lesser known’ Korean cities (outside of Seoul, Jeju and Busan)
Please do note that we’re looking for bloggers for this campaign who can post on their platform and have enough experience in one of the above themes or regions to post a detailed guide. Of course we do also know that some level of additional research will always be needed for posts of this length. It is strongly recommended that you also have photography on your chosen theme or region.
Stories from Korea
In addition to the in-depth guides, we’re also looking for content creators to post some more personal stories from Korea. These posts will not be in an kind of ‘top 10’ or guide format, but focus more on an individual story from Korea. Korea and Traverse always love a story that will resonate with followers and have a more personal touch. Think along the lines of ‘How a week in Seoul made me fall back in love with Travel’ or ‘Overcoming my fear of heights on Jeju Island’ as the sort of title that we’ll be looking for.
