Inside Vietnamese Contemporary Cultures

AVI’s main focus is to share adoption related news but it also aims to bring news and views from and about the wider Vietnamese community. AVI members and related groups are welcome to send us links to interesting news on Viet films, books, artists etc. and some will be posted here when time permits but please see the AVI FB page for more recent updates as that is where we share posts most frequently.
