Hanoi life in subsidy period on show

On June 16, an exhibition about life in Hanoi during the subsidy period opened in Hanoi. On display are objects donated by people and collected by museums of Vietnamese ethnology.

The exhibition presents objects and documents of Hanoi from 1975 to 1986 when the renovation policy was in effect.

Through the exhibition, visitors can understand how people lived as well as how life was during the subsidy period, but also the dynamism of ordinary people in overcoming difficulties at that time. It was the people’s dynamism and creativity that has brought about the current successes.

Objects are exhibited according to topics: the distribution system (coupon system, food shops, stalls selling Tet goods), social and cultural management (films, arts, radios, bicycles, etc.), a family’s space (reconstruction of a cramped apartment) creativity and activeness (dreams of Hanoians at the time).

Pictures of the country in the renovation and integration period are also on display.

In addition, two films, “Hanoi – a difficult time” and “A memorable time,” made with community participation, portray diverse views of different social classes during the period.

The exhibition is sponsored by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the Swedish International Development Agency (SIDA), Ford Foundation, and the project to review 20 years of renovation under the Vietnam Academy of Social Sciences.

The exhibition will close on September 17, 2006.
