Dear Friends,

On behalf of the AMTM Team, I wish you all an excellent year in 2013!
I hope that it will be full of joy and happiness for both yourself and those closest to you.

From these Newsletters and our Journals you will be able to discover how much your loyalty has permitted us to achieve, as well as our latest news.

Like most associations, we are facing a significant drop in donations (-30%), which is identical to last year.

Fortunately, sponsorships remain stable, the creation of donations for operational costs, the 200+ Club, as well as an increase in the amount of public subsidies, have allowed us to compensate partly for this decline. 
From now on we’ll need to adapt our actions to the circumstances.

A huge thank you for your commitment, for which you appreciate how crucial it is, and which I hope will be renewed again this year!

A very happy 2013 to you all!

Laurent Charbonnier



The year has started off well for the AMTM Events Team, with the exhibition ’20 Years – 20 Artists’, which was held in the superb Bastille Design Centre in Paris!

Congratulations to Claire and Nathalie Mériel (and the AMTM Team) who put on this wonderful display, which they are hoping to repeat.
Thank you Mme Leforestier for offering us this beautiful venue (we only paid for the technical help).
Thanks also go to the selection committee, which is made up from experts in the art world and informed collectors, for their hard work (over 100 portfolios were viewed from which 20 artists were chosen).
Thank you Mme Laurent  and the students of the EAC for your precious help.
Our thanks go to the artists for agreeing to donate 40% of their sales to AMTM.

Thank you to everyone who participated, sales of more than €14,000 were collected.  It is very satisfying given the current situation.
Together with the takings from the AMTM Stand, a total of €6,550 net was raised, which will allow us to prepare for our Missions in the field in March (Nepal) and April (India) with confidence.
Finally, our brochures and documentation were handed out to the many visitors.

Well done, all of you!
