From the organizer:
Come to an exhibition of children’s drawings “This is my Mexico – This is my Vietnam”. The collection is made of 42 drawings of Mexican children living abroad and 42 Vietnamese children living in Hanoi.
The Mexican drawings are part of an itinerary exhibition result of the Children’s Drawing Contest “This is my Mexico”, which today has become a tradition, involving thousands of Mexican children, and of Mexican origin living around the world. The theme of the call was “Traditional Mexican Cuisine: Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity” as a way to join the glee of the declaration made by UNESCO in November 2010, and to celebrate the XV years of the Contest.
Vietnamese children were invited to capture in small strokes and colors the meaning of Vietnamese food for them. The response was immediate: the most beautiful expressions of the rich culinary culture.
