The 3rd Let's DMZ Peace and Arts Festival serves as a venue for comprehensive academic gatherings and cultural arts, embracing the meaning and ecological value of peace with public participation through events such as forums, concerts, exhibitions, and sports. The core theme of this festival is ‘Peace, Again,’ which has the dual meaning of conveying wishes for peace in inter-Korean relations as well as in our daily lives as we face the trials of the COVID-19 pandemic.
