VTV.vn - The festival creates an interactive platform for creative individuals and organizations to engage with an extended audience offline and online.

The 4th annual Vietnam Festival Of Creativity & Design 2022 (VFCD) is organized by RMIT University Vietnam in collaboration with the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), Vietnam National Institute of Culture and Arts Studies and other partners.

The festival creates an interactive platform for creative individuals and organizations to engage with an extended audience offline and online.

With the theme 'Change: Creativity Challenge', the VFCD includes exhibitions, talks, and workshops on visions, trends, cultural identities, and the future of Vietnam's creative industry.

The festival aims to strengthen cooperation between organizations and individuals in creative and cultural industries, expanding the UNESCO Creative Cities Network.

Professor Julia Gaimster, Dean of School of Communication & Design at RMIT Vietnam and the head of the festival organising board, said:

“Over the last two years we have all faced unprecedented challenges but through this adversity we have also found resilience and energy. We have encountered circumstances that have demanded that we think differently, act differently and change our view of the world.

“Through this festival, we are offering challenging and creative activities to inspire people and to enable a deeper understanding of the role of creativity and design in society – how it improves lives and supports economic development.”

Mr Christian Manhart, UNESCO Representative to Viet Nam, added: “‘Change’ is the challenge in the post-COVID-19 crisis for all and artists and designers in particular. We have seen severe negative impacts on cultural and creative industries. We need to recover better and should see the change also as opportunity. It is time to adapt! That is our message with the theme of ‘CHANGE: Creativity Challenge’.”

VFCD takes place in two hubs in Vietnam’s two biggest cities:

Hanoi: from 7 to 13 November 2022 at COMPLEX 01, No. 29 Lane 31 Alley 167 Tay Son Street, Dong Da District

Ho Chi Minh City: from 18 to 24 November 2022 at De La Sól, 244 Pasteur Street, Vo Thi Sau Ward, District 3
