From the organizers:
What does Tết – the Lunar New Year – mean to Vietnamese people nowadays? Does Tết still play an important role in the life of the Vietnamese, when it has been recently proposed to combine Tết and the Gregorian new year celebration? What does Tết feel like to the younger generation?
These topics will be discussed at the talkshow “Living the modern Tết”, hosted by Hội Quán Di Sản (Heritage Club).
Guest speakers: Nguyen Minh Tam (journalist – Ha Noi Moi newspaper), Bao Yen (reporter – Tam Nhin newspaper), Dinh Cuong (journalist-photographer – Lao Dong newspaper), Ngoc Oanh (contemporary artist – Hyp.Art), H&T Fashion representatives, and young people who are interested in culture & tradition.
Objective: discuss, exchange ideas & experience of experts in different fields; introduce the exhibition “Ban thờ ngày Tết” (The Ancestor Altar during Tết) by Hội Quán Di Sản to the young audience.
