An Oral History of cai luong theatre: Research will be invited through an open call to engage with performers and other practitioners of the cai luong community to undertake a survey of the artform’s history. Afterwards, we will work with a curator (also selected via an open call) to organise a multi-media exhibition in Ho Chi Minh City to showcase this oral history to a public audience. 

Cai luong teaching: Senior cai luong artists and performers, as well as arts and cultural organisations engaging with the artform, are invited to submit funding proposals to teach cai luong to children and young adults. The objective of the funding initiative is to actively promote engagement with cai luong at a grassroots level.
