Past projects, conducted with other supporting artist include: village festivals in 2004 and 2005, an on the spot art festival held for 12 weeks from February to April 2006 (Spring also comes to Stolen Fields), an arts exhibit in the Nonghyup barn in Dachuri (the Mountains and Rivers of Our Homeland) beginning in July 2006, the cultural festival “Pyongtaek, the Fields Weep in Silence” in June and July of 2006 and others.
