- The Special Olympics World Winter Games in Pyeongchang 2013 impressed the world by raising the Special Olympics to a level of Cultural Olympics with concerts, held every evening, that showcased many intellectually disabled (ID) artists who performed alongside renowned Korean artists.
Hence, we have established “Pyeongchang Special Music Festival” in order to continue the legacy of the Special Olympics World Winter Games in Pyeongchang 2013. Specifically, through providing targeted music lessons and time for interactions to national and international ID artists with musical talents, we aim to provide a unified goal of “we can be the best” beyond the barrier of language and disability.
- PSMF is a project following the Special Olympics World Winter Games in Pyeongchang 2013 and is scheduled to be held annually in Pyeongchang. It seeks to promote musical interaction between national and international ID artists and to support the improvement of musical abilities.
It is the spirit of Special Olympics to support wider understanding and tolerance of intellectually disabled among the ordinary members of society. As such, PSMF is sponsored by not only ID related organizations but also cultural societies and other diverse organizations.
Especially, PSMF supports the participation of ID artists from developing countries in order to continue expanding the spirit of Special Olympics to every part of the world.
