CJ Cultural Foundation

We are ushering in a new future for the culture and cultural industries by empowering early-career artists to pursue their dreams.

Building on the belief of CJ Group CEO Lee Jay-hyun that “companies are guardians of young people’s dreams,” the CJ Cultural Foundation has enriched Korea’s cultural landscape by supporting emerging artists in the spheres of music, filmmaking and the performing arts since 2006. By appreciating the brilliance of young artists and helping fulfill their dreams, the Foundation enriches the nation’s culture while making it more diverse.

The CJ Cultural Foundation seeks to expand the foundations of the culture industry and contribute to a healthier ecosystem made up of culture and arts by turning emerging artists’ and creators’ dreams into reality through a broad range of support programs including TUNE UP, STAGE UP and STORY UP.
