AbstractPartnership for Change (PfC) provides programs and assistance to both urban and rural Myanmar communities to improve the economic and social opportunities for local business and community leaders. The PfC support model builds skills that lead to new economic options, especially for young adults starting new social enterprise ventures. An important aspect of the PfC community engagement model is the recognition and support of the arts and culture of the community. In both rural and urban Myanmar, PfC programs for art, music, and cultural literacy and heritage surround the practical skill building efforts, and enhance the vitality of the community. Pilot programs in smaller towns provide learning opportunities to refie and improve programs before broader implementation in more expensive urban settings. PfC programs include specifi music, art, literature, and cultural heritage programs, and the connections and integration between the programs demonstrate the positive benefis from the approach.
