Vietnam Festival of Creativity & Design 2021 (VFCD 2021) initiated by RMIT University Vietnam creates an open, timely and interactive platform for creative individuals and organisations to engage with thousands of audiences online and offline. Many events don’t require entrance fees.
Under the theme CREATIVE FUTURE, the VFCD 2021’s programme includes cultural exploration tours, talks/seminars, workshops, exhibitions, and various online activities discussing visions, trends, cultural identity and future opportunities for creative industries in Vietnam.
By organizing a series of creative activities that are open to all, Vietnam Festival of Creativity & Design 2021 becomes a catalyst event to support the strategic objectives within the National Strategy for the Development of Cultural Industries in Vietnam, including establishing a strong connection between cultural development and the socio-economic development of the country. At the same time, the Festival supports the foundation of a “creative belt” across the country through the eventual expansion of the UNESCO Creative Cities Network in Viet Nam.
Vietnam Festival of Creativity & Design 2021 continues on the success of Vietnam Festival of Media & Design 2019 and Vietnam Festival of Creativity and Design 2020 which created a significant impact on the media, drived collaboration, partnerships and projects among organizations and individuals in the cultural-creative sector in Vietnam.
Vietnam Festival of Creativity & Design 2021 is organised by RMIT University Vietnam in collaboration with United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), Vietnam National Institute of Culture and Arts Studies (VICAS) and COLAB Vietnam and other partners including individuals, groups, organizations, enterprises in the creative industries, with Hanoi Grapevine as the media partner.
