Việt Nam Cultural Profile represents the first major attempt to map the cultural infrastructure of this fascinating yet hitherto poorly-documented country. It offers a detailed sector-by-sector guide to Archives, Competitions and Awards, Ethnic Culture, Festivals, Film, Funding, Government Cultural Policy and Infrastructure, Heritage, International Exchange, Libraries, Literature, Mass Culture, Media (Broadcasting, Press, Publishing, Internet), Performing Arts, Research, Tourism, Training, Visual Arts and Youth Arts. Each sectoral overview concludes with a detailed directory of key contact organisations, making it possible for the reader not only to learn about what is happening in a particular cultural sector, but also to make direct contact with the key people working in it.
Targeted at cultural professionals, yet packed full of information and images which will be of interest to the cultural tourist, the Việt Nam Cultural Profile forms part of a new and highly authoritative source of web intelligence on culture in South East Asia.
