The British Council is looking for a creative training provider or a higher education institution to work with the Cultural and Creative Hubs Vietnam Project Team to co-create and deliver a one-week training programme in cultural and creative skills in March 2019 for 20-25 participants who are owners and managers of the six key CCHs of the project. 

Location: Da Nang City, Vietnam
Delivery time: March 2019


Cultural and Creative Hubs Vietnam is a three-year project funded by the European Union and implemented between 2018 and 2021 by the British Council in partnership with the Vietnam National Institute of Culture and Arts Studies. This project proposes a series of activities focusing around a network of local organisations – the Cultural and Creative Hubs (CCH) – that actively engage with practitioners and the audiences in the field of arts, culture, and creativity. 

The project has been designed to encompass three inter-linked key components. The first surrounds building capacities and enhancing the capacity for CCHs managers and owners, as well as their artists and creative practitioners – in particular, in terms of management, audience development, and other specialised creative and cultural skills. The second component aims to create opportunities – via policy dialogue and other platforms – for direct and open exchange towards relationship building between CCHs and government administration of the culture sector. The third component promotes the sharing, learning, and networking amongst hubs from different parts of Vietnam, as well as between Vietnamese hubs and their European counterparts.
