Artstream Myanmar

An artists initiative, Artstream Myanmar wants to provide a platform for national and international cultural information exchange. At the same time, it presents Myanmar artists and writers to a larger public and aims to facilitate contacts with them.

The site includes addresses of some galleries, artists, writers and cultural organisations in Myanmar. In the "arts and culture" section, one finds essays on diverse arts-related topics. The site which has been funded by the Tampere Polytechnic, Finland/School of Art and Media and the German Heinrich Boell Foundation, has apparently not been updated since some time.

It addresses the need to provide accessibility to view Myanmar artists' and writers' works and to ways of contacting them, which has up until now been very limited.

Artstream Myanmar can be used as a directory and an events calendar for contemporary arts and cultural practitioners and events taking place inside Myanmar.
