Vietnam Festival of Creativity & Design 2023 (VFCD 2023) initiated by RMIT University Vietnam creates an open, timely and interactive platform for creative individuals and organisations to engage with thousands of audiences online and offline. Many events don’t require entrance fees.
Under the theme MIND & MACHINE, the festival’s programme includes a series of tours, talks/seminars, workshops, exhibitions and activities celebrating Vietnam’s creative power and human identity in the age of technology.
By organising a series of creative activities that are open to all, the Vietnam Festival of Creativity & Design 2023 is a catalyst event to support the strategic objectives within the National Strategy for the Development of Cultural Industries in Vietnam, including establishing a strong connection between cultural development and the socio-economic development of the country. At the same time, the Festival supports the foundation of a “creative belt” across the country through the eventual expansion of the UNESCO Creative Cities Network in Vietnam.
Vietnam Festival of Creativity & Design 2023 continues the success of Vietnam Festival of Creativity & Design in 2019, 2020, 2021, and 2022. The event created a significant impact on the media-driven collaboration, partnerships and projects among organisations and individuals in the cultural-creative sector in Vietnam.
Vietnam Festival of Creativity & Design 2023 is organised by RMIT University Vietnam in partnership with the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO), Vietnam National Institute of Culture and Arts Studies (VICAS) and other partners, including individuals, groups, organisations, enterprises in the creative industries, with Hanoi Grapevine as the media partner and Behalf Studio as the design partner.
