A photo exhibition titled “Hanoi as I see it” is taking place at the Thang Long Imperial Citadel at No 9 Hoang Dieu street, Hanoi to open a new door for heritage preservation – letting locality tell and preserve the heritage they see around them.

This is a result of the project on improving the capacity for world heritage sites in Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam, which has been carried out by UNESCO since 2011. The center for Thang Long Imperial Citadel preservation is one of the coordination partners.

Local community members, from 14 to 46 years old, shared their stories through words and images in the exhibition. From barbers to shopkeepers, office workers to housewives, students and Youth Union officials, each has their own perspective on the daily life, customs, traditions, festivals and crafts of today’s Hanoi and wished to contribute their voice towards the preservation and promotion of our cultural values. Through each story and picture, they share their thoughts, feelings, pride and warmth towards those living around them, the members of the local community and their cultural heritage.

The exhibition was pided into five topics, including daily life, which talks about the new urban Hanoians; living heritage, which tells about specific sites such as Thang Long Imperial Citadel; folklore knowledge which brings visitors images about the continuation and preservation of knowledge heritage in modern life in traditional villages; cultural activities which include performances of spiritual and cultural festivals; and traditional handicrafts.

The exhibition will run until August 31st as an opportunity for visitors to enter their own true stories about cultural heritage in the capital./.
