From the organizer:

Thì Collective and Heritage Space are delighted to introduce an online exhibition titled “Hyperlocal Tapestries: Blueprints for Equitable and Sustainable Futures”, featuring the works of 6 artists/artist groups from four different geographical areas. The exhibition is a part of The Global Incubator, a project launched and managed by Artlink (Switzerland), aiming to provide transdisciplinary artists and creatives with 2-10 years of professional experience the opportunity to learn the practical skills required to design, coordinate, and facilitate an engaging virtual workshop.

As one of the four implementing partners of the program, Heritage Space supported Thì Collective from Central Vietnam – the selected candidate in Southeast Asia – to conduct the workshop “Art as a Method of Engagement Society” with the participation of creative individuals from all three regions. The results of the project have been presented on this online exhibition platform with five other candidates from South Asia, South America, and Eastern Europe.

*Free to join, maximum 100 people.
**Language: English, Vietnamese with interpretation support.

The Global Incubator saw six transdisciplinary artists-grantees and creatives from across the world, furthering their capacities in crafting, coordinating, and leading captivating virtual and in-person workshops on themes canvassing Food Futures, Migration and Mobility, Indigenous, Afro-Caribbean Cosmogonies, Gender & Equity and Climate Action.

With mentorship and collaborative guidance, the artist-grantees pushed boundaries, captivated diverse audiences, and left a lasting mark on their respective creative landscapes during the project from September 2023 to April 2024.

The Global Incubator is an initiative of artlink financed by the South Culture Fund (Switzerland) in partnership with Meta Arts (India), Heritage Space (Vietnam), lugar a dudas (Colombia), and Global Landscapes Forum (Indonesia, Germany).
