Hanoi Rock City x Sensoria

Cities in Sync.

Cities in Sync is a project of the UK/Vietnam Season 2023 of the British Council in Viet Nam. The aim of the Project is to exchange, connect and develop music between the two cities of Hanoi - Vietnam, and Sheffield - UK.

In collaboration with Sensoria from Sheffield (United Kingdom), Hanoi Rock City will build an ecosystem of online community, workshops, music education and performance activities in order to nurture and develop the budding music community of Vietnam.

UK/Viet Nam Season 2023.

The UK/Viet Nam Season is a project from the British Council that will showcase the best examples of UK–Vietnamese collaborations across the arts, creative industries, higher education, and English. This initiative, which commemorates 50 years of diplomatic relations between the UK and Viet Nam and the 30th anniversary of the British Council’s presence in Viet Nam, envisions our future together by forging new partnerships and reinforcing the bonds between the people of both countries. This season will focus on two key themes: Climate and the Environment and Our Shared Heritage.
