Associate professor wins Artisan Advocate Award (Feb 08, 2003)

Associate Professor, Doctor Nguyen Van Huy, who is also director of the Vietnam Museum of Ethnology and chairman of the Ethnology Association, has been presented with the Artisan Advocate Award by the US organisation, Aid to Artisans (ATA).

ATA held a ceremony in New York on February 4 to confer the awards for the first time on a number of individuals who had contributed to renewing and maintaining handicraft occupations in the world.

ATA President C B Smith said that the award was handed over to Associate Professor Nguyen Van Huy in acknowledgement of his great achievements at the Vietnam Museum of Ethnology and his contributions to the diversity and promotion of better understanding of Vietnam's various cultures.

Under a cooperation project with the US Natural History Museum, Doctor Nguyen Van Huy will organise an exhibition entitled "Vietnam: Human Beings' Journeys, Spirit and Soul" in New York in March this year.

On display will be exhibits, reflecting the Vietnamese people's daily life in all parts of the country, particularly the diversity of cultural life of 54 Vietnamese ethnic minorities.

ATA was established in 1976 with the aim of helping artisans carry out programmes of designing, developing and marketing their products in international markets. (VNA)
