Hanoi (VNA) – The Department of Culture and Sports of Hanoi, in collaboration with the University of Industrial Fine Arts, launched a competition on August 22 to seek new and unique ideas in creative spaces, designs and products for Hanoi.
Creative ideas are sought for the interior and exterior of public works; decoration of squares, flower gardens, parks, cultural houses; drawings and graphic images for cultural and artistic works; fashion designs and accessories; architectural designs for factories and industrial parks; products that can enhance the assets of the city in terms of culture, history and craft village; and new technological applications.
The contest is expected to create momentum to form a creative economy, thereby contributing to the achievement of the goal of making Hanoi an innovation center in Southeast Asia and the global destination for knowledge and creativity.
According to director of the Municipal Department of Culture and Sports Do Dinh Hong, municipal authorities are actively coordinating with agencies and organizations to organize competitions and events towards a network of young creators and valuable products that can contribute to the creative industry of the capital.
During the launch ceremony of the competition, a cooperation agreement was signed between the two organizers to strengthen ties in the field.
In 2019, Hanoi became an official member of the UNESCO Creative Cities Network in the field of design. Municipal authorities always create favorable conditions to raise the bar in the areas of design and creativity, and promote community engagement to gradually realize its creative initiatives./.
