The three-year project Cultural and Creative Hubs Vietnam – to run between 2018 and 2021 – was officially launched today. The project will be implemented across Vietnam with activities focusing on a network of Cultural and Creative Hubs that are actively engaged with practitioners and the audiences in the field of arts, culture, and creativity.

A call is currently open for six cultural and creative hubs in Vietnam to become close collaborators for the project. The organisers are looking to select hubs to reflect a variety of hub typologies and arts/creative disciplines and a geographic spread. A hub is described as a place, physical or virtual, which brings people together to express artistic ideas and creativity in an open and nurturing environment, and in turn allows them to share a variety of artistic outputs with their communities. Cultural and Creative Hubs have the potential to be important players in the cultural sector and to give Vietnamese people access to high-quality and diverse cultural activities.

Cultural and Creative Hubs Vietnam is funded by the European Union and implemented by the British Council in partnership with the Vietnam National Institute of Culture and Arts Studies.
