Independent Myanmar Artist Alliance

I just came across an April 16, 2012 post on the Pansodan Art Gallery blog, which provides a bit more information about the newly formed Independent Myanmar Artist Alliance.
Pansodan’s contribution to improve the life of artists in their own country is the Independent Myanmar Artist Alliance, mentioned in the Guardian article. It was the idea of Aung Soe Min, and is hosted by Pansodan Gallery. It is a new model of professional association — somewhat like a union, but without most of the bureaucracy and positions that, no matter how noble the initial ideas, later tend to be used for obstruction and gain.
