THE DA NANG ARTISTS COMPANYThe DA NANG ARTISTS COMPANY is a not-for profit enterprise that arose from the work of the Steady Footsteps charitable organization. Whereas the mission of STEADY FOOTSTEPS is to provide physical rehabilitation for disabled people in central Vietnam, the Da Nang Artists Company aims to provide talented, disabled Vietnamese artists with a way to market their artwork to an appreciative international clientele. While other organizations provide opportunities in sheltered workshops for disabled individuals to do repetitious piecework, we know of no other organization that recognizes, encourages, and markets original art work of the quality offered here.

I want to thank you so much for the wonderful painting and please thank, Nguyen Tan Hien, the artist too. I bought a frame and now have it hanging in my conference room.

All of Hien's paintings sold, and we will revisit his works once we have settled in. People who viewed his work, in person, loved his paintings.

Thank you so much for the beautiful painting by Hien. I love his watercolours, they are lovely and particularly of Hoi An. It will always be a very special place for me with many happy memories - so it's lovely to have a nice reminder of my time there.

My partner and I are impressed with Trang's embroidery. We know Hoi An embroidery but hers is exceptional.
