Background of Dự án “đây/đó (here/there)”:
The project promotes contemporary design practice while sustaining traditional forms of art and craft practice in the wake of rapid development and global challenges in Vietnam and Australia. đây/đó (here/there) opens up opportunities for cultural, economic and knowledge exchange between makers and designers from the two countries over a year-long period to present new art, craft and design. Four emerging craft and design artists from Vietnam have been mentored by Vietnamese and Australian mentors to develop their designs for international audiences and markets. Outcomes are going to be presented as part of Vietnam Design Week 2022 and the Vietnam Festival of Creativity and Design (VFCD) 2022.
The project is a continuation of Skilled Hands, Shared Culture, a cross-cultural exhibition hosted by RMIT Gallery in partnership with VICAS and Vietcraft in 2020 that featured the work of 10 Australian and 10 Vietnamese artists, designers and craftspeople whose work explores the links between art-making and community.
đây/đó (here/there) was officially launched as part of Vietnam Festival of Creativity and Design – VFCD 2021 with a collaboration workshop between Phạm Phan Hoang Linh from Linht Handicraft (Vietnam) and The Social Studio (Australia), with mentorship from Thảo Vũ from Kilomet109. The project is supported by the Australian Embassy in Vietnam, CAST (Contemporary Art and Social Transformation research group), RMIT Culture, RMIT University Vietnam, Vietcraft, Vietnam National Institute of Culture and Art Studies (VICAS) and Vietnam Design Group.
