Artists' union formed in Myanmar

In a recent Guardian article I came across this brief mention of the formation of an artists' "alliance" (union) in Myanmar. One of those involved in the union is Aung Soe Min, who runs the Pansodan Art Gallery in Yangon.
With Thein Sein's recent relaxation of unionisation regulations, local artists have been able to create an independent artists' alliance, and plan to form an art colony and museum of contemporary works in the coming months... "With the alliance, we want to give a space for artists to explore their own creativity, to explore their true feelings" [said Aung Soe Min].
