Pyinsa Rasa Art Space - Secretariat

Read More about Pyinsa Rasa Here

Hi! I’m Nathalie Johnston, co-founder of Pyinsa Rasa and the only member with a US bank account, hence my being the spokesperson and organizer for this Go Fund Me campaign for our art project in Yangon. All funds will be transferred to me, Nathalie Johnston, and I will in turn deliver them to the Pyinsa Rasa project from the Go Fund Me campaign.

We are Pyinsa Rasa. A group of 9 artists and organizers  living in Yangon, Myanmar. Our project benefits the public of Yangon, from all walks of life.

Our collective in Yangon was founded in order to create a  permanent cultural space for this quickly expanding city. Our Pyinsa Rasa Art Space at The Secretariat is just the first step.

Support us to run public programming in this historic space, formerly the Minster's Building, from March to July 2018.

These funds are needed urgently, in order to start the program in the coming month.

Pyinsa Rasa Art Space will show Yangon how a building with so much history can become a space for the public, for art, music, film and fun for the whole family.

Funding goes towards public programming like puppet shows, children's activities, major exhibitions with local artists, film screenings, and music concerts. We have to pay to set up the space, transport art works, hire security, provide facilities, and write and translate interesting and educational texts for the public. This is how your money will be spent and we will account for every dollar.

We love Yangon and we want this city to be a destination for people all over the region. We believe the people of Yangon deserve access to their buildings, and it is our job to provide them with a cultural space to enrich their daily lives.

Your support means so much to us, and even more to young people, who are eager for change in their city.

Thank you for your generosity. You are supporting the arts in Yangon and empowering creativity and free thinking in Myanmar.
