The association will organise a seminar on the merger and socialisation of the stage art units in Quang Ninh province and a conference on the stage industry in Vietnam and the world.

In addition, a wide range of festivals will be held nationwide including a theatrical art festival on the image of public security soldiers (in July); the National Tuong (Classical Drama) and Folk Singing Youth Talent Festival in Binh Dinh province (in August); the fourth Capital Stage Festival and the National Cai Luong (reformed opera) Youth Talent Festival in Ca Mau province.

The VSAA will cooperate with the Hanoi municipal Department of Culture and Sports to hold a ceremony to honour Vietnam’s intangible cultural heritages that have been recognised byUNESCO.

Earlier in May, the association launched a writing camp in Da Lat city, Lam Dong province, with the participation of 20 artists who created many high quality scripts across different art forms.

Another camp is scheduled to be held in the Dai Lai tourist area in Vinh Phuc province; meanwhile, many field trips to the seas, islands and industrial and agricultural economic areas will also be organised for the artists.
