BackEvents » Ảnh viện Ngôn Từ - Tái Khám Phá | Reinvent Saigon @ TOONG coworking space

Speaking of Saigon from the past, how could we fail to mention the memories of afternoons at Ben Thanh Market, jammed packed with people deeply engaged in iconic newspapers such as Tieng Chuong, Tia Sang, Duoc Nha Nam, or Ngon Luan?

[Free entrance]

Our Ngon Tu Gallery (*), set up in one of Saigon’s most iconic printing factories, will take you back to experience the city's bygone eras of its collective culture. This is a rare opportunity to revisit a world where newsstands were constantly in demand, read through prized collected items of vintage local covers, illustrations, reviews, and articles dreamed up by the city’s most prominent journalists, and columnists throughout decades.

In a disrupted era of fast-paced journalism, Ngon Tu Gallery presents a gathering space for enthusiasts, writers, and creatives to retrace the Vietnamese language, along with the genuine yet vanguard aesthetics in the city’s layered design culture. We hope the event will rekindle a new appreciation for Vietnam’s native language, creative writing, and reading culture, thus building up a platform that embraces new generations of intellectuals in town.
