HA NOI (VNS)— A fund to support artists was launched recently in the northern Vinh Phuc Province.

Under the "Art in The Forest" (AITF) fund, the creative work of three talented painters and sculptors will be sponsored every year.

"We aim to help emerging artists turn their ideas into reality. The selected artists will get a maximum of VND200 million (US$9,000)," artist Vu Hong Nguyen, the fund's co-founder, said.

The AITF fund will also seek artworks for its collection. It bought three sculptures made by Khong Do Tuyen for its first collection.

A month-long creativity camp was held as the first event of the fund at the Vinh Phuc's Flamingo Dai Lai Resort in October.

About 15 artists, such as Tuyen, Tran Duc Nghia, Tran Trong Tri and Lap Phuong, the only female artist present, attended the camp.

Their wood, steel, marble and bronze sculptures have been installed in the resort. — VNS
