Kyaw Myo Ko

Managing Director – Program Coordinating

In 1990, at the outset of this career, Kyaw Myo was involved in setting up the first puppet theater company in Mandalay, Myanmar, known as Mandalay Marionettes Theater, and is still involved in its further development locally and internationally.

He ventured into the field of tourism in Myanmar in 1994 and in 1998 he turned the focus of his works to Myanmar traditional culture. Since then he has travelled extensively, working, on and managing many local and international cultural exchange activities.

From 2008 to the present day, Kyaw Myo has also been working as a local project coordinator undertaking a series of projects to support the Cultural Emergency Response – CER program of The Prince Claus Fund (The Netherlands). The Primary aim of this foundation is to aid artists, related local communities and cultural objects – contemporary or historical – that have been affected by natural disasters in various regions of Myanmar.

In 2009, based on his local and International cultural and travel experiences, Kyaw Myo returned to tourism part time in order to contribute his knowledge of conservation and safeguarding of the traditional, natural and cultural heritage of Myanmar. His aspiration is to share cultural diversity with those who appreciate and enjoy this way of life and who travel with respect, encouraging them to build bridges between people and to be repeat visitors to Myanmar.
