Face with familiar memory at the strange alley
It was once a town that played a central role in the administration of Gangneung and the city hall, old government were located. However, as the city hall building was relocated and the downtown area was formed elsewhere, less people are visiting here. Myeongju-dong found its color again because of the cultural space using the old buildings emerged here.
The 'Myeongju Art Park', which is the former Myeongju elementary school building, is managed as a cultural and artistic space and there’s performance hall and a practice room for projects such as performances and exhibitions. Theater and concerts are held constantly in the small stage 'Dan', where the old church built in 1958 was reorganized. The old mill and house over 100 year-old were rebuilt as a stylish cafe.
Like this, Myeongju-dong alleyway has a sense of space with a mixture of present and past. When you turn the corner, you will often stop walking because of analog scenery.
The flower garden made by the villagers, mural, old wooden house will talk to walkers, knocking on their shoulders.
In the warm scenery, We take out the old memories without even knowing it. Just like the old scenery that emerges clearly, when you dust off the dust, there is a Myeongju-dong alleyway.
