The British council invited Barney to Vietnam to do a series of photography workshops: 'Open Academy Europe’ 2011.

Following the successful project ‘Open Academy’ in 2010, some EUNIC members now continue as a EUNIC Project ‘Open Academy Europe’ 2011. The British Council, the Goethe Institute and the Austrian Embassy invite artists from their countries to Hue and HCMC in November 2011. Again the Academies of Fine Arts will be their partners. Together the themes have been selected: Barnaby Steel (GB) with panorama photography, Paul Schwer (Germany) works with installations and Thomas Feuerstein (Austria) with video art. The intention is to strengthen dialog between the European and the Vietnamese art scenes and to enrich the education, especially of younger artists, through innovative impulses.

Thanks to Sandra for documenting the workshops with me
