An art and culture concert, called “Myanmar Spring”, is to be held on April 24th at the Bangkok Art and Culture Centre (BACC Hall). The charity event is being organized by Myanmar students in Thailand, in the hope of raising awareness and raising funds in support of the anti-coup Civil Disobedience Movement (CDM), internally displaced individuals and families of those who have lost their lives in Myanmar conflicts.

A virtual event will also be held on the same day, with sales of T-shirts and a food festival on the 13th of April to raise funds.

The orchestral music concert will be performed by a group of student volunteers and talented individuals. There will also be a poetry recital and other heartfelt performances, which the artists say will reflect the struggles for democracy in Myanmar.

Thailand is a second home to many thousands of Myanmar workers and students. When the anti-coup protests began on February 1st, Myanmar people in Thailand have regularly been getting together to show solidarity with the people in their home country.
