Registration of the ILF as a Charitable Trust

The Irrawaddy Literary Festival has now taken the important step of becoming a UK-registered Charitable Trust (Charity Commission number 1168517). The Board of Trustees believes that the festival’s governance structure, as a Charitable Trust, is a significant and accurate reflection of the inclusive, not-for-profit ethos and objectives which inspired the Festival’s creation. The decision to seek registration was approved by founding patron, Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, and finalised on 29th July 2016.
