“Picturing Autism Vietnam” is the title of a photo exhibition on people with autism in Vietnam and the world which is on at the Vietnamese Women’s Museum. This event is part of the activities in response to the first “Vietnam Autism Awareness Day” – April 2nd, 2016, jointly organized by Vietnam Autism Network (VAN), affiliated to the Vietnam Federation on Disability (VFD) and other organizations.
Picturing Autism Vietnam is part of Photographer Debbie Rasiel’s journey across disparate landscapes, language barriers, and cultural divides to document the lives of families with living autism. In this exhibition, a collective portrait emerges of families and caregivers living with autism, loving their children, and continuing on with their lives.
The opening ceremony of the exhibition "Stories of Resilience: Women living with disasters" was held at the Vietnamese Women's Museum on March 7th 2016. The exhibition is part of a project that focuses on enhancing the capacity of women in disaster risk reduction adaptation. The project is being implemented by the Vietnam Women's Union (VWU) with support from UN Women.
40 outstanding drawings from the "Gender Equality: Picture it" Comic and Cartoon Contest are on exhibition at the Vietnamese Women's Museum, between March 1st and March 10th, 2016. The contest was organized by the Embassy of Belgium, the Belgian Development Agency (BTC) in Vietnam and UN Women Vietnam, in cooperation with the Vietnamese Women's Union, with the aim of eliminating sexual violence as well as other forms of violence against women and girls.
For the past 5 years, the Vietnamese Women's Museum has run a charity project named "Warm Winter" to donate food and clothes to poor women and children across Vietnam. This year the project was held in My Thanh Village in Bac Kan Province. There are 220 poor and near-poor households in this area, with the majority of them belonging to the Yao and Tay ethnic groups.
On the occasion of Lunar New Year 2016, the Vietnamese Women's Museum is close from Saturday, February 6th to Sunday, February 14th 2016 (Lunar Calendar from December 28th to January 7th).
