Matca Creation Grants 2021

Matca Space For Photography

In the local context where resources for independent artists remain scarce, Matca Space for Photography reflects our vision to offer emerging photographers the opportunity to showcase their works, as well as broaden public understanding of this visual art form. 

Located at the heart of the capital, our physical space hopes to become a meeting spot for photography and art lovers. The venue is fully equipped and lends itself well to a variety of events. Our audience is diverse, young, and hungry to learn, and we are well connected with a network of art practitioners in Vietnam and the region. Since collaboration is at the heart of what we do, we would love to hear ideas from you.

Not limited to photography, we have hosted poetry readings, book launches, wine tastings, film auditions, and more. Please read further information below and send your proposal to
