Hanoi honours artisans and heritage workers

The Hanoi Department of Culture and Sports held a get-together on November 22 with artisans and heritage workers from across the city on the occasion of the 15th anniversary of Vietnam Culture Heritage Day (November 23, 2005-2020)

Hanoi is home to the largest number of tangible and intangible cultural heritages in Vietnam and also the most artisans to have been awarded noble titles, with seven People’s Artisans and 69 Meritorious Artisans. The contingent of artisans and heritage workers, including those who directly look after relics, have contributed significantly to preserving, educating and promoting the value of the city’s intangible cultural heritages.

At the meeting, the representatives of the Hanoi Department of Culture and Sports highly appreciated the efforts to conserve and promote the values of cultural heritages at the grassroots level made by the artisans and those directly involved in the work.

In 2020, the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic has posed difficulties to the work of managing, preserving and promoting the values of the capital’s cultural heritages, with many relics and relevant units having been forced to temporarily shut down operations. 

Despite this fact, local heritage workers have exerted great efforts to promote the values of heritages, thus contributing in the implementation of Hanoi’s commitment to UNESCO on maintaining and promoting world cultural heritages and intangible cultural heritages of humanity, as well as those on creative city building.

Director of Hanoi Department of Culture and Sports To Van Dong said that, in the coming time, the city would continue to effectively implement the municipal Party Committee’s Programme No. 6 on developing socio-culture, improving the quality of human resources, and building elegant and civilised Hanoians in the 2021-2025 period, as well as the project to develop the culture industry in parallel with developing and perfecting the culture market.

At the meeting, artisans performed various types of intangible cultural heritages such as Ca Tru (ceremonial singing) and Chau Van (spiritual singing), which have been well-preserved by the city in recent times.
