Kozziecom will celebrate Lunar New Year with a street festival to support businesses in Koreatown affected by the pandemic. Welcome To Korea! will provide a platform to Korean-Australian creatives and businesses affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.

The one-day event will showcase 3D art installations, including a range of stalls from local streetwear brands, beauty products, and Korean baked goods. The event will conclude with an hour of Street Performances showcasing notable Korean-Australian rappers, singers and dancers. 

Taking inspiration from the Year of the Tiger, the event will also include an interactive art installation featuring the tiger – a prominent figure in Korean folklore.

Digital Koreatown maps, created by a local Korean-Australian artist, will be available throughout the entire duration of the festival. The map will highlight notable Korean businesses within Koreatown such as Vecino, Sydney Madang Korean BBQ restaurant, Kim Sun Young, and The Nolza

Having an opportunity to reconnect with our community, and to have a bigger platform to tell our brand story at scale will be a really significant and important opportunity for us as we try and build this brand – one that focuses on this intersection between Korean & Australian culture,” says Alex Wu, the founder of streetwear brand Aison Ander.
