JANGMADANG
TOUR
SEPT 25 - DEC 9
Jangmadang
[jang ∙ ma ∙ dang]:
A North Korean word for market. A place where North Koreans gather to buy and sell goods, and talk.
North Korea is the most oppressive country in the world, but change is happening at the grassroots level. This tour will focus on one of the most significant trends emerging today: the Jangmadang Generation. This is your chance to hear our North Korean peers describe what's happening in their country and learn how we can help.

ABOUT THE EVENT
We are privileged to bring you the voices and insights of our friends who have experienced the challenges and changes in North Korea first hand. We worked with Joo Yang, Yeonmi Park, and Joseph Kim to produce a personal, dynamic and engaging multimedia presentation.
This is a unique chance to hear directly from North Koreans (through videos that address the audience) about life inside North Korea and what we can do to help.
You will gain a better understanding of the challenges the people face and the ways they are overcoming them from some of the most amazing North Koreans we know. Our North Korean friends will share incredible insight, hope, and inspiration.

Through 13 North American tours and over 4,000 events, we have reached over 300,000 people at schools, places of worship, community groups, and even coffee shops. We're honored to have presented at some pretty cool places like Google, Harvard, Yale, and West Point. LiNK events can be hosted anywhere!
FIND AN EVENT

Even if you see an event in your town, we would still love for you to host your own. Many high school events are not open to the public, so please contact the venue or us directly if you are interested in attending any of these events.
The North Korean people, and especially the Jangmadang Generation, are the best hope for liberty in North Korea. Host an event to learn more about how they are at the forefront of the bottom-up changes in North Korea, from people who helped drive those changes themselves!
Questions?
ARE YOU TOURING NEW VIDEOS?
  • Yes! Tons. We have NEW media and videos, sharing an inside look into the lives of the North Korean people, stories of North Korean refugees who have escaped, and new media showing changes inside North Korea.
SO, IS THIS A POWERPOINT PRESENTATION?
  • Kind of... and so much more. LiNK events are educational and engaging speaking-style presentations with videos to connect audiences to the people behind the stories. This event is unique in that we will be sharing videos of North Koreans speaking directly to audiences.
ARE THERE THINGS WE CAN DO TO GET INVOLVED?
  • Absolutely! LiNK events are designed to be educational, as well as engaging. We provide practical ways for everyone to get involved and make an impact in the lives of the North Korean people.
DOES THE EVENT COST ANYTHING?
  • Kind of. The people presenting do not get paid, but we ask that you help us get to your city by providing a $100 travel honorarium. That's all.
WHERE CAN I HOST A LiNK EVENT?
  • Wherever you are. Events have been held in school auditoriums and classrooms, places of worship, community centers, and even coffee shops.
WHAT DO I NEED TO PROVIDE FOR AN EVENT?
  • People and a screen. We will bring media and trained LiNK representatives. You are responsible for getting a space and filling it with people.
COOL! I WANT TO BRING LiNK TO MY TOWN!
Howdy, I’m Chelsea. I am here for you! Feel free to contact me directly with questions or ideas!
