HA NOI (VNS) — Experts will discuss the quintessence of Vietnamese communal houses and their cultural and historical values during a seminar tomorrow in Ha Noi.
Traditionally the communal house is the soul of the community, where tutelary gods of the village are worshipped. They are also places for communication with other communities, cultural and educational activities and ritual ceremonies.
Tran Hau Yen The, a lecturer at the Viet Nam University of Fine Arts, and Nguyen Duc Binh, head of the editorial board of the Fine Arts, Photography and Exhibition magazine, will contribute thoughts on the preservation of these old houses.
The seminar is open from 9am to anyone interested at the Heritage Space, Dolphin Plaza, 28 Tran Binh Street, Nam Tu Liem District, Ha Noi. — VNS
