From Hanoi Grapevine

Vietnamese creative hubs and creative professionals are facing remarkable challenges created by coronavirus pandemic, and, on top of that, the ongoing uncertainty of a fast developing economy with a legal system that doesn’t recognize creative hubs’ existence. Living in constant changes and unpredictable challenges is an opportunity to grow resilience by sharing resources and talents and building a new mindset. On this occasion, Hanoi Grapevine would like to build such an opportunity by hosting a webinar for cultural creative hubs, art and culture organisations, and creative practitioners to meet, to share information and to discuss collaborations. The webinar is named:
Being creative in the face of crisis – How to grow resilience together

The webinar is organised with the generous support from the British Council, the European Union and Vietnam Creative hubs’ Initiative ViCHI under the project Cultural and Creative Hubs Vietnam 2018-2021.

The webinar will focus on sharing information, exchanging resources, presenting collaborative ideas and projects among individuals and organisations including international and local ones in both public and private sector who share the same vision of working in art and culture for a sustainable future.

Challenges could be: a pandemic, out of funding, change of location, change of direction, losing talents and skilled staff, change of culture, etc…

Webinar participants will have the chance to: a/listen to experienced and inspirational key speakers’ stories – how they deal with challenges, b/join the Q&A session with them, and c/look for possible collaborators
The webinar is suitable for: Creative individuals, leaders and workers of cultural and creative hubs, private enterprises, or public organisations in Vietnam working in the cultural creative sector who are looking for collaboration, inspiration and resources to support one another’s and/or to overcome their own challenges.
