Bringing arts, research, and advocacy to public and political attention in Myanmar, this festival, hosted by the Enlightened Myanmar Research Foundation in Yangon in late 2019, was the first of its kind. The hall was packed with people comprising the full gamut of the country’s ethnic, religious, and regional diversity. People discussed arts in research; political representation; freedom of expression; and experiences of discrimination, marginalisation and exclusion by women, ethnic minorities, and those living on the borders. This was part of the ‘Reducing inequalities in public engagement in Myanmar’ project.
