VietNamNet Bridge – Artists from South Korea have given Tam Thanh fishing village in central Quang Nam Province a new look with colourful murals.
In early June 2016, Tam Thanh Village in Tam Thanh Commune was chosen for an art project as part of the Korea Foundation Community Art Exchange Programme held by the Korea Foundation and the UN-Habitat Vietnam to improve living conditions and introduce more art to the public.
Five artists from the South Korea, 12 volunteers and many Vietnamese students have given the walls of about 100 houses a new face.
Even the locals are also excited about the arts on their houses and volunteered to help. From the village gate to the many houses, the community seems livelier with pictures of a genie, flowers and daily activities.
The village has become a new tourist destination.
