Myanmar Country Desk Inaugural Public event

25th October 12.30 – 14.00 UK time.

Dr Green will present for 45-50 minutes, followed by discussion and Qs and As.

In person and online attendance welcome.

From influential superpower to repressive regime, Myanmar – also known as Burma – has seen dramatic fluctuations in fortune over the past 1,500 years.

Experiencing decades of civil war and now ruled again by a military dictatorship, Myanmar is an isolated figure on the world stage today, and its story is relatively little known in the West. However, the extraordinary artistic output of its peoples, over more than a millennium of cultural and political change, attests to its pivotal role at the crossroads of Asia.

Interconnected yet cut-off, rich in natural resources such as jade, rubies and teak but with much of the country living below the poverty line, Myanmar is a country that defies categorisation. Dr Green will introduce this unprecedented exhibition to attendees and share background information. This event offers the chance to see the history behind the headlines.
