Theme: Out of the norm

This event occurred on
April 10, 2021
Hanoi, Ha Noi
Vietnam

Out of the norm, meaning unusual or to be different from what is considered “normal”. Creativity is one of the greatest traits of human kind. It forces us to step outside of our comfort zones to explore and discover unfamiliar things surrounding us. What seems to be a “known” concept can be looked at differently at a different perspective. People use their creativity differently. Some compose mesmerising arts, some construct inventions, some elevate common items to greater innovations, and so on. We encourage and motivate individuals to be proactively creative to mark their own unique stamp into this world.
