Hieu and the two other finalists stood apart from thirty-nine applicants from 27 countries on six continents, who triumphed through a challenging selection process as all applicants demonstrated good practice for the safeguarding of intangible cultural heritage with both courage and a lofty spirit.

According to the organising board, the safeguarding of the intangible cultural heritage of the Muong community, one of minority groups of Vietnam, has a strong social impact on the entire society.

The activities of Vu Duc Hieu’s Museum of Muong Cultural Space could be considered as model activities for the safeguarding of the intangible cultural heritage of minority people, resulting in assisting minority groups to affirm their cultural identity and promoting the establishment of the harmonious cultural diversity of the nation.

The winners will be honoured at an award ceremony which will be held online on Youtube on August 15 due to the complicated developments of the Covid-19 epidemic.

The awards, sponsored by the Republic of Korea’s Jeonju city, aims to encourage model safeguarding practices of intangible cultural heritage in the global community regardless of nationality, ethnicity, religion, race, age, gender, or any other political, social, economic or cultural orientation.
