Community events with VAPA
Community events are vital to building and maintaining happy communities. And since VAPA is a community-based arts organisation, we just love discovering new and exciting ways to enrich and delight the people of Hoi An!
In 2019 we held our first ever DANCEATHON fundraiser, a community event that raises money for disadvantaged kids. This annual event highlights perfectly the meaning behind arts and cultural events. That is to say that there is nothing more heartwarming than watching a community dance joyously so that those less fortunate might also experience that same joy!
In addition to the danceathon, VAPA has also provided entertainment for a number of community events in Hoi An and Da Nang. In December 2016 we led a group of local and expat children through a fun night of carol singing. Then, in 2017, we danced and sang up a storm at the Green Shoots International School Eco Market. Following that, our students performed live at a charity event for the victims of Typhoon Damrey.
Of course, the above are just a few examples of many! Regardless of the event—whether it be a fundraiser, festival, market or sporting event—VAPA has something special to offer.
