From Vietnam Festival of Creativity & Design:

Initiated and presented by Hanoi Grapevine and RMIT, the podcast series “Creative Future” consists of 30-to-45-minute episodes which to showcase inspirational stories and people in the cultural and creative industries, thus creating a new channel for storytelling that could attract young people to a portrayal of a diverse, exciting and dynamic creative city.

The 3rd podcast episode will be on air as VFCD 2021 comes to a close, after two weeks of dynamic discussions and exploration on different aspects of the art–cultural–design industries in Vietnam, as well as the importance and application of creativity in different contexts: from exhibitions on new online platforms, international collaboration in fashion, applying technology in promoting heritage, to innovation in product designing to address environmental issues, and many more.

This Sunday evening, let’s meet the young, active people from all three regions of the country, learn more about their work and get a better understanding of their localities’ highlights, and their vision on the future of the cultural industries in Vietnam.

This podcast episode’s round-table speakers include:
Phan Đỗ Phúc (Founder, Schubert in a Mug, Hanoi)
Chinh Ba (Founder & Art Director, CAB Studio, Hoi An)
Cécile Ngọc Sương Perdu (Founder) & Nguyễn Anh Huy (Member) (Lộn Xộn Project, Can Tho)
We will also get to hear opinions from the public sector, through a discussion between VFCD and Associate Professor Dr. Bùi Hoài Sơn (Standing member of the National Assembly’s Culture and Education Committee).

Schubert in a Mug is a classical music project initiated by cellist Phan Đỗ Phúc in August, 2020. SiaM includes a series of performances combined with talk/conversation with audience. The show is organised twice a month in small and medium size venues, with the aim to create an intimate, cozy atmosphere where artists and audience share their love, curiosity and stories for classical music.

CAB (Cultural & Arts Base), operating since June 2019 after three years of preparation, is established as a space for arts – cultural connection and exchange to and from Hoi An. Its residency and educational programmes, bringing artists to Hoi An, aim to raise awareness on local art as well as help artists utilise local elements. In the long run, CAB hopes to create a community of people who practice and enjoy art, helping Hoi An become a key hub of creative arts and culture in the Central region.

Lộn Xộn is the very first freelance art and design exhibition project in Cần Thơ. With the aim to build a new artistic collective for young creatives to undertake new challenges; to freely express themselves through their artworks and form connections; and ultimately nurture an experimental art community in Cần Thơ.
