DESIGN A MONUMENT TO HO CHI MINH
April 17 2015.
A new competition has been launched to design a monument to Vietnam’s former leader Ho Chi Minh, who worked on the Newhaven-Dieppe ferry after the First World War.
The competition is open to all residents of Newhaven, as well as to students, staff and alumni of both Sussex University and West Dean College and members of the Vietnamese Society of Brighton and Hove.
The artist who submits the winning design will win a trip to Vietnam, including a visit to the factory where the monument will be created.
The winning design will then be installed on the Newhaven West Quay promontory later in 2015 – 125 years after Ho Chi Minh’s birth.
