Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism
Describe the main features of the policy/measure: 
The Culture and Arts Policy in 2018 established Culture Vision 2030 and the New Art Policy based on the governance of public-private cooperation in May 2018. These mid-to-long-term plans are of great significance in the fact that they have moved away from the traditional methods that have been led by the government and established under the advice of private advisors. The plans have been organized and operated by private experts centered on TF to manage the entire process, including the basic direction of the plan, the policy vision, the setting of strategic tasks, the detailed tasks, and the development of projects. For Culture Vision 2030, the public-private cooperation body of ‘New Culture Policy Preparatory Group’ and ‘New Art Policy Establishment TF’ were organized for the New Art Policy. The opinions of the people were actively reflected through regional discussions, forums, conferences, and online public proposals.
What are the results achieved so far through the implementation of the policy/measure?: 
Composed of private experts, the New Culture Policy Preparatory Group went through 252 discussions on public opinions, 13 regional cultural policy forums, and six on-site discussions by division, website (Facebook), field discussions, and meetings. Based on these, they set autonomy, diversity, and creativity as three major values of 「Culture Vision 2030-Culture with People」, deriving nine agendas, 47 representative tasks, and 186 promotion tasks. To establish the 「New Art Policy」, a New Art Policy Establishment TF was formed with a total of 53 people, including 35 from the arts and academia, researchers from Korea Culture & Tourism Institute, and people in charge in institutions supporting arts. Then they were divided into 10 divisions by sector and genre. In addition, in order to gather the opinions of artists in the field, more than 100 discussions and conferences were held for each sector and genre, and the opinions of local residents were actively collected through 40 regional discussions. As a result, a new art policy was established and announced, consisting of eight strategic tasks, 25 implementation tasks, and 83 representative projects.
