“here / there” is a long-term craft and design collaboration between Vietnamese and Australian designers, artists and creative craft practitioners. The project is supported by the Australian Embassy in Vietnam, CAST (Contemporary Art and Social Transformation research group), RMIT University Vietnam, RMIT Gallery, Vietcraft, VICAS (Vietnam National Institute of Culture and Art Studies), WorkRoom Four and Vietnam Design Week.
The project aims to promote contemporary design practice while also sustaining traditional forms of art and craft practice in the wake of rapid development and global challenges in Vietnam/Australia; while opening up opportunities for cultural, economic and knowledge exchange between makers/designers from the two countries. The creatives will work together over the next 6-12 months to present new art, craft and design work in 2022.
“here / there” will officially launch in VFCD 2021 with a collaboration workshop between Phạm Phan Hoàng Linh from Rẻo (Vietnam) and The Social Studio (Australia), with mentorship from Thảo Vũ from Kilomet109.
