There has been significant growth in contemporary art and creative industries in Vietnam, especially in major cities like Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, demonstrated by the emergence of many art centers. These centers are not only bridges connecting artists with their audiences but are also the outlets for foreign tourists to learn more about Vietnamese contemporary art.
First introduced in 2015, Heritage Space has rapidly become the region’s favorite hub for art lovers, particularly people in the filming community. Spreading over 1,000m2 on the first floor of Dolphin Plaza building, this artsy complex consists of a gallery, library, music stage, cinema, conference room and multi-purpose outdoor area. The center can also be the perfect venue for exhibitions, art displays, music & performance events, education seminars, and much more.

Many Vietnamese artists choose Heritage Space for their talk shows focusing on a wide variety of topics like books, music, architecture, etc.
