Cambodian Living Arts (CLA) recently staged their first-ever Arts4peace Festival in Phnom Penh at Bophana Centre to celebrate Cambodia’s arts; past, present, and future.
In the 40th year since the fall of the Khmer Rouge, and in conjunction with CLA’s 20th anniversary, the Arts4peace Festival honours and celebrates the essential work done by three generations of artists to revive, transmit and develop the arts.
The Arts4peace Festival will start from 14-24 November 2019, a 10-day programme which will include music, theater, dance, workshops, exhibitions, discussions will take place at the Cambodia-Japan Cooperation Center, the Institute of Foreign Languages/RUPP; Chaktomuk Theater; and the Institut français du Cambodge. Cambodian Living Arts will screen selected performances online so that they can be seen around the rest of Cambodia and the world.
In cooperation with young famous singers in Cambodia, the Arts4peace Festival will feature a concert that will feature pop/hip-hop duo Kmeng Khmer together with the Khmer Magic Music Bus who have teamed up to create an original song for the festival. They will perform together at the Arts4peace Festival Concert on Sunday 24 November at IFL, starting at 7pm.
