I believe it is important for me to support the art community. I have received so much enjoyment from the arts, hence my desire to do something. I don't like the term "giving back" as I prefer to use the more appropriate term "supporting a community." The idea that I would want to give something back suggests that I didn't like that something in the first place, and I want to trade it in the day after Christmas. No, thanks. I want to build and support instead.
For example, volunteering to judge the monthly photo contest for Gwangju News is one of my more public endeavors to support photographers in Jeollanam-do and in Korea. This is a link to the July 2012 photo contest: Gwangju News Photo Contest.
I'm just doing my part, that's all.
