HA NOI (VNS) — Dang Thi Minh Thu will represent Viet Nam at the Innovation Camp on February 22 organised by the British Council and Yamaguchi City Foundation for Cultural Promotion.
Thu is art director of Kidstallation, a playground launched in Viet Nam by Tohe Social Enterprise. She has taught art for children, researched art projects and opened art and cultural events in Ha Noi since 2003.
She is among the originators of the 12 leading ELEVATE StartWell Challenge ideas for Reimagined Play across Asia-Pacific and the UK launched by the British Council and Singaporean Lien Foundation with the goal of rethinking the priorities of childhood.
The fellows work with local and international experts to develop and refine their ideas. At the end of the camp, they will resubmit their ideas for the opportunity to secure a portion of the US$37,000 funding available to develop their concepts further. — VNS
