From 4 – 15 April, 2023, The Mill on Angus Street in Adelaide will host the “Surviving the Sunset” fundraising art exhibition, organised by the Australian Myanmar Institute for Democracy, Human Rights and Peace Limited (AMIDHRP) and Amnesty International.
The theme “Surviving the Sunset” refers to the current situation in Myanmar, where the military-led junta known as the Tatmadaw overthrew the democratically elected government. This theme alludes to the need for the people of Myanmar to overcome the “sunset” of democracy in their country and to restore human rights and peace.
We welcome art lovers from the Adelaide community and beyond to join us for this exhibition. The collection features a selection of works from Myanmar and Myanmar-Australian artists, curated by LuLu Htet, founder of iLearnBurmese and Director of AMIDHRP.
In addition, the exhibition includes artwork donations from local Australian artists Kingsley-Wilson Head, Director-Secretary of AMIDHRP, Andrew Wilson-Head, Peter Westerhoff, as well as some framed photographs from Anne Wilson.
Join us in supporting democracy and human rights in Myanmar by visiting “Surviving the Sunset” at The Mill on Angus Street in Adelaide.
There will be a launch event on Tuesday, 4 April, from 4-6pm with food and drinks available.
The exhibition is also open from 4 – 15 April, Monday – Friday, 10am – 4pm.
Admission is free, and all are welcome.
