Background & Rationale
Recognized as UNESCO Creative City of Design in 2019, Ha Noi has committed to place culture and creativity at the core of its sustainable development, with a wider vision to become a leading creative hub of Southeast Asia. In order to support the commitment of the city, UNESCO is leading the project Mobilizing Cultural Dynamics and Youth Participation towards Ha Noi Creative Capital with the slogan “Hanoi Rethink” together with other two implementing partners UNIDO and UN Habitat. This project will support Ha Noi City to implement its new strategic vision of a Creative City of Design, harnessing its cultural assets and youth participation as key agents for innovation, creativity, and social change.
One of the key outcomes of the project is to empower young Vietnamese creative talent to influence and contribute to the new development agenda of Ha Noi as the Creative Capital with innovative ideas and actions. To realize this outcome and to provide youth a platform to participate and demonstrate their creativity, UNESCO is organizing a series of youth events in August 2022, taking advantage of the UN in Vietnam’s celebration of International Youth Day. The series of events include a workshop for youth, an exhibition, and a craft fair.
About the exhibition: As the theme of International Youth Day 2022 focuses on the "dialogue between generations and how to make people more connected", UNESCO is organizing an exhibition called “Family meals.” “Family meals” – is the touch point of family members, especially on the dining table. The interaction during family meals creates platforms to increase sharing among generations, thereby better understanding the thoughts and feelings of each other. It is a simple daily activity but has an important influence on the development of young ones.
About the craft fair: In Viet Nam, there are strong initiatives to support entrepreneurship in the tech industry, but the programs to support cultural and creative entrepreneurship are still in a nascent stage. In order to create a platform for young people to participate, showcase, and promote their creative products, UNESCO is organizing a creative craft fair for young entrepreneurs within the framework of Ha Noi Rethink, aiming to support the establishment of a young designer network as well as serves as a pilot activity for the Ha Noi Design Center.
