Together with the Foreign Office of the Federal Republic of Germany, with support of the Robert Bosch Stiftung and the S. Fischer Stiftung, the Goethe-Institut announced at short notice in July an international aid fund for cultural institutions that contribute to ensuring pluralistic societies. Out of 440 applications submitted from 75 countries, 140 projects were accepted for funding. In Myanmar, the Wathann Film Festival 2020 and the Myanmar Contemporary Art Online Platform by Myanm/art were selected. The funded projects will run from September to December 2020. We congratulate the applicants!
