A) Imagination School: Arts and Culture Education Support Project for Marginalized Youth ;
 In 2009, the project was jointly carried out by the Ministry of Health and Welfare, the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism, Korea Youth Work Agency, and Korea Arts and Culture Education Service to promote arts and culture education for marginalized children and youths. A total of 1,253 youths from 92 organizations in 16 cities and provinces took part in this project. The youths, who had been marginalized from the arts, were able to increase their cultural creativity to enjoy arts in everyday life.

B) Creating a Happy School through Arts and Culture Education ;
 The target groups are elementary, middle, and high schools (including special schools). Among these, applications for “host schools for arts and culture education” are submitted to metropolitan and provincial offices of education for review before they are selected by the Ministry of Education. Currently, 130 schools have been selected and operated as student musical schools. Student orchestra schools have been expanded to include 400 schools. 
 In 2013, 100 schools including 51 elementary schools, 28 middle schools, 19 high schools, and 2 special schools were selected as new host schools for student orchestras. In particular, one special school is a school for mentally disabled children and youths.
