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 the Ha Noi Illustration Contest with the theme “Hanoi is…?”
After a month of calling for submissions from August 6th to September 9th, about 250 young artists from across Viet Nam and abroad have participated in the Illustration Contest “Ha Noi is…”. With the evocative theme “Ha Noi is…”, young artists have come up with unconventional and refreshing ideas integrated with personal touch to portray their own unique Ha Noi. The Ha Noi Creative City has been illustrated in digital paintings, silk painting, collage art, lacquer, etc.
In order to further promote the artwork, UNESCO is looking for an institution to organize an exhibition for the winning artworks in December 2021.
