Ancient town and Andong, Korea to boost cultural exchanges
HỘI AN — The International Mask Arts & Culture Organisation (IMACO) and Andong City, Korea have agreed to work with the Hội An’s information and culture center to promote cultural exchanges in the coming years.
The parties signed a Memorandum of Understanding in Hội An on Wednesday on the occasion of the Andong City Cultural Day held in Hội An.
The two cities will host art performances, exhibitions and friendship exchanges. They will promote tourism and introduce each other’s cuisine through regular events.
The ancient town already has a history of cultural exchange with Gyeongsangbuk Province, where Andong is located.
In June, the art troupe of Hahoe Folk village, a UNESCO-recognised world heritage site in Gyeongsangbuk, performed mask dances in Hội An. In September, Vietnamese art troupes from Hội An also performed in the province.
The people of Hội An, an UNESCO-recognised world heritage site, and other residents of the central province of Quảng Nam will host the Korean Cultural Day next month as part of a series of programmes to celebrate Việt Nam-Korea diplomatic ties. — VNS
