The exhibition, themed “Thang Long-Ha Noi,” saw the participation of 10 calligraphy clubs from across the capital city, together  with other clubs from all three regions of the country.

More than 100 works on display feature Ha Noi’s land and people, cultural values, history and education.

The event will provide a space for the community to enjoy and members of the public can view calligraphers writing Nom, the Chinese character-based Vietnamese script.

Visitors will be given the chance to write Nom script themselves, chat with the calligraphers and enjoy an array of interactive activities.

In addition, the event also aims to connect calligraphy clubs in Ha Noi and calligraphers across the country through exchanges, while giving visitors an insight into this kind of art.

The exhibition will go on until October 10./.
