Cambodian Living Arts (CLA) will stage the Arts4peace Festival in November 2019. This marks the dual occasion of the 20th anniversary of CLA and the 40th anniversary of the end of the Khmer Rouge regime in Cambodia.
The festival will bring local and international attention to the impact of arts in Cambodia over the last 40 years, by celebrating work by 3 generations of artists and organisations to preserve, revive, and develop arts in Cambodia.
The highlight performance of the festival will be the Cambodian premiere of Bangsokol: A Requiem for Cambodia.
Come and enjoy a 10 day program of exhibitions, talks and screenings that will give people the opportunity to engage with the work of the many artists and organisations involved in the Cambodian cultural sector.
An online program – including exhibitions and a “virtual festival” – will extend the reach of the festival to people unable to physically be present in Phnom Penh, both in Cambodia and overseas, as well as creating a legacy from the festival. Come and soak up this one of a kind festival of youth, peace, music, culture and colour!
