Fellowship opportunity for Cultural Practitioners in Myanmar

Mekong Cultural Hub and the British Council have a great opportunity for those working in the cultural sector in Myanmar:

‘SEAΔ is a program co-created by Mekong Cultural Hub and British Council which creates space for cultural practitioners to reflect on how their work in arts and culture can contribute to sustainable development within South East Asia through their individual and collective leadership.’

The program has 4 main gatherings spread over a one-year period where Fellows get together. Each gathering takes place in a different country and has a unique purpose:  exchange, create, share then reflect’
