Hanoi Grapevine’s Finest aims to become an annual honoring event, organized and selected by Hanoi Grapevine and PAN – the pro-active audience network. The event seeks to honor individuals, organizations, projects, and activities whose work in the creative arts has had an impact on the community, in order to foster artistic development, promote media coverage and further the influence of arts and culture on the community in a broader and more meaningful manner.
Hanoi Grapevine’s Finest 2019 and Hanoi Grapevine Pro-active Audience Network (PAN) would like to express our appreciation of valuable sponsorship from British Council, European Union, and Cultural and Creative Hubs Vietnam.
For every honoring category, HANOI GRAPEVINE’S FINEST has conducted a thorough and responsible selection process. The selection criteria aim to highlight the developmental significance and spreadability, proposed by Hanoi Grapevine and evaluated by a professional and enthusiastic Board of Advisors.
Organizers are selected based on their length of operation (in years), representative impactful project/activity in the arts, positive influence and contribution to the art world and the broader community in general.
