Hợp xướng Đa dạng (Diversity Choir) is the first community diversity choir initiative in Vietnam, co-created with the founding principle to respect and honour diversity and difference. The mission is not only about singing together, or always having to hit perfect notes together – it is also very importantly about providing a space and place for a symphony of community building and social change performance opportunities by members of minority groups, as well as their children and allies, in all their diversity. The participatory action research (PAR) and Communications for Development (C4D) outcomes of the Diversity Choir, which are centred around members of minority groups collaboratively leading to transform normative understandings of diversity, are shared via their inaugural co-created live staged performance, as well as subsequent manifestations and newly co-created live and recorded performances. These outcomes contribute insights into feminist disability praxis in the Global South, as well as particularities about intersectional praxis.
