Vietnamese Canadian Media Association

VCMA

VCMA is a Canadian not-for-profit association serving industry and media professionals. We cultivate relationships that result in relevant connections, comprehensive opportunities and successful outcomes. As an organization, we strive for inclusivity, openness and forward-thinking in the ever-changing media industry environment.

VCMA’s mission is to connect and enrich communities through Vietnamese art and culture.

The original mission of VCMA was to support Southeast artists, with an emphasis on Vietnamese literature and visual arts. VCMA is a community-based non-profit organization historically run entirely by volunteers. Over the years, VCMA has collaborated with diverse community partners to organize numerous cultural events to connect and enrich communities. These events have included art exhibitions, book signings, music concerts, plays, and annual events such as the <event 1> and <event 2>.

Values

Community

We believe in creating an inclusive and progressive community that nurtures safe spaces, representation, and belonging. We recognize that the arts can be a powerful platform for promoting connectedness and enhancing our lives.

Cross-Cultural Enrichment

We respect the diversity and complexity of our community at large. We believe in sharing our culture as well as welcoming other cultures through our programs as a bridge for increasing mutual understanding.

Communication

We believe in creating a trusting environment that fosters communication and upholds honesty and transparency within and outside the organization. Through open dialogue grounded in mutual respect, we can build a more sustainable future.

Collaboration and Partnership

We believe in creating a space for collaboration, both inside and outside the organization, in order to foster an environment of camaraderie and team-building. Through developing and maintaining strong partnerships, VCMA provides connections within and outside the Vietnamese Canadian community. These strategic partnerships invite multiple perspectives, strengthen our programs, and broaden our reach.
