Cambodia Living Arts
They were founded in 1998 by genocide survivor and musician Arn CHORN-POND. For a decade, they focused on endangered performing art forms and rituals. As 90% of Cambodia’s artists did not survive the Khmer Rouge regime, Cambodia’s artistic heritage was in danger of being lost forever.
Over the last 20 years, both Cambodia and the arts scene have developed rapidly and they have evolved their work to match. They have focused on helping talented people to build and develop careers in the arts, through scholarships, fellowships, and support to troupes and individuals.
Looking forwards, they aim to promote creativity and innovation in the arts sector, and to build links with their neighbors in the Greater Mekong region and further afield in Asia. They are also working to get more arts and culture education into Cambodian public schools, and to increase performance opportunities for Cambodian artists.See more
