Home has many meanings, from the buildings we live in to a feeling that goes beyond a specific place. The Museum of the Home’s purpose is to reveal and rethink the ways we live, in order to live better together. It is a place to explore and debate what home means.
We’re looking for volunteers to support on THE NODEY PROCESS event, which consists of a film screening of a documentary following French Vietnamese hip-hop artist Nodey and his relationship with music and his Vietnamese identity, a live Q&A around creativity in Vietnamese Diasporas and an after party presented by Contemporary Vietnamese DJ’s.
