In Vietnamese <vân vân> is equivalent to <ectetera>, meaning “of like things,” or “and so forth”.
CULTURE V.V began as a passion project between two friends, each on their own journeys into their Vietnamese identities, and brought together by a shared passion to build an accessible space for community learning and growth for young Vietnamese in Canada.
Informal seminars and panels on themes related to the “Vietnamese” experience are hosted live on our Discord. Beyond facets of culture, topics such as family, mental health, gender, history, and more will find their ways in to our conversations.
We want to provide young Vietnamese student leaders, academics, creatives, and newcomers both materials to begin their own inquiry into “Vietnamese”-ness. Postings and opportunities in the Asian/Vietnamese Canadian community are shared on our Discord. Research recommendations for curious friends wanting to dive deeper is in the works at the moment.
