The British Council in Vietnam newly announced the Heritage of Future Past - a Cultural Heritage for Inclusive Growth project. This project marks the 25th anniversary of the British Council’s work promoting closer cultural relations between the United Kingdom and Vietnam.
Heritage of Future Past, or Di Sản Kết Nối in Vietnamese, is a project delivered through the British Council’s Culture and Development initiative, with activities spanning two years. The project will engage with the music and film heritage of Vietnam, with particular focus on aspects that are under threat, disappearing, or under-represented.

"We will use innovative approaches in working with music and film heritage to create inclusive and sustainable growth in the heritage sector", sait the British Council.
Heritage of Future Past is a major part of the British Council’s cultural relations mission in Vietnam as the principle cultural and educational organisation of the United Kingdom. The project is also part of a series of programmes and activities that the British Council will deliver in 2018, celebrating the 25th anniversary of its operations in Vietnam.
The British Council is proud that it has made an effective contribution to the development of cultural and educational understanding between Vietnam and the United Kingdom, which has strengthened the strategic relationship between the two countries. We promote the exchange and sharing of friendly knowledge and understanding in a wide range of areas including the arts, creative economy, English language training, education, social enterprise and innovation, and testing and accreditation.
The British Council committed to deepening and strengthening our work in Vietnam to create more opportunities for collaboration and cooperation, and deliver more mutual benefit. We are delighted to launch this important new initiative: the Heritage of Future Past. This GBP £500,000 project will run from 2018 to 2020.
