A worshipping ritual of Co Tu ethnic group is re-enacted at the Da Nang Cultural Heritage Festival.

In addition, visitors to the festival have the chance to gain a deeper insight into Da Nang’s heritages through attractive activities such as watching artisans perform wood carvings and Co Tu ethnic minority group’s sculptural arts, admiring how handicraft products are created, re-enacting a ceremony to erect a Neu (a tall bamboo pole with red garment strips used to ward off evil spirits during the lunar New Year), and a performance of the ‘tung tung da da’ dance to show gratitude to heaven.

* On the same day, managers, cultural researchers, artisans and fashion designers gathered at a seminar in Hanoi to discuss the preservation and development of the traditional Ao Dai (long dress) heritage in the present society.

They touched on several Ao Dai-related issues, including the potential to use traditional Ao Dai in the society, revamping Ao Dai, education on Ao Dai, and building Ao Dai preservation spaces in Hanoi and localities.
