Golden-Thread-Christie-Charity-Auction-5Following the success of Christie’s charity auctions in Phnom Penh, Cambodia in 2012 and 2014, Re­‐creation and Intersections galleries, specialized in Asian arts, are co-­organizing a charity auction in Yangon, Myanmar in May 2017 in collaboration with CHRISTIE’S.

Under the official patronage of His Excellency Robert Chua, Singapore Ambassador to Myanmar, this event will position Myanmar artists on the international art scene.

One year after the establishment of a new government, Myanmar is entering an unprecedented era of arts development
and witnessing a growing international recognition and interest. This auction will attract an audience of international
collectors, curators, government officials, business and corporate leaders as well as museum representatives.

The funds collected during the auction will be donated to a selection of charities in Myanmar, taking into consideration the current needs in the education and health sectors.

NGOs and charitable organisations include:

  • School for disabled children
  • Myanmar Christian Fellowship of the blind
  • Orphanage at St Francis convent

Golden-Thread Christie's-Charity-AuctionA check with the raised amount (objective 45,000 USD) will officially be handed by CHRISTIE’S to His Excellency Robert Chua, the patron of this event and of the Singapore Association of Myanmar (SAM). This organisation will be receiving and distributing the funds appropriately. This ceremony will take place during the VIP lunch.
The Singapore Association of Myanmar has been very involved and supportive of the local society and community,
through humanitarian projects and activites since 1993.
