Xem anh phong to
The Hanoi-based Australian Embassy is hosting the Australian education and culture week from February 17 - 25, 2012 to showcase Australian culture and education to Vietnamese audiences.

Cultural events throughout the week will highlight Australia’s traditional indigenous culture, and show Vietnamese how modern Australian artists interpret this culture creatively. February 13 is the fourth anniversary of the historic apology to Australia’s indigenous people.

Internationally acclaimed musical group Visions of a Nomad, which plays indigenous Australian-influenced jazz fusion music, will perform at the University of Foreign Trade and the University of Commerce. The award-winning Australian musical film Bran Nue Dae will screen at the Water Resources University, the Hanoi Medical University and the Vietnam Commercial University.

Australian Ambassador to Vietnam, Mr Allaster Cox shared: “Australia is proud to share our culture and approach to education with Vietnamese people through Australia Week. Cultural events throughout the week will give many young Vietnamese a new understanding of Australia’s traditional culture, and how that’s been embraced by modern Australian artists. And the English seminars will give Vietnamese students a chance to benefit from Australia’s world-class education and training system”.

Along with these cultural activities, English language seminars will be held at the universities to help improve students’ English skills and share with them Australia’s highly successful English teaching methods. Information drawn from the film and the performances will be integrated into the seminars to deepen students’ understanding of Australian education and culture.

A friendly football tournament will be held on February 17 between teams from Vietnam’s Ministry of Public Security, the Australian Embassy in Hanoi, and police from the Australian State of Victoria. The Victorian Police will also run a football clinic at the Birla Children’s Village orphanage in Hanoi, and donate sports equipment to the orphanage.

Besides, the Australian Agency for International Development will host a family barbecue on February 25 for Vietnamese who have studied at Australian education institutions under Australian Development Scholarships and Australian Leadership Awards to enhance links between these alumni.
