Fourth Year of Banana Fest Is Here!

The Viet Up organisation has prepared the fourth year of Banana Fest – a multi-genre festival the aim of which is to give Czechs an idea of what the life of young Czech Vietnamese people is like. Why did the organisers decide to call it Banana Fest? They see themselves as ‘bananas’, which is a colloquial name for the second generation of Vietnamese migrants living in the Czech Republic. Similar to bananas, young Vietnamese people are yellow from the outside (Asian looks) but white inside (European mentality). The phenomenon of ‘banana children’ is one of the most-discussed topics in the Vietnamese society. The main goal of the project is to present the Vietnamese society in the Czech Republic to the wide public in a fun and playful form. Come to Kampus Hybernská on 26th October from 4:00 to 10:00 p.m. to see it yourself!

The festival enhances mutual understanding and the development of the relations between the Czech and the Vietnamese societies. It is implemented with the financial support of the Prague City Hall.
