Our Mission

Our mission is to be a catalyst in a vibrant arts sector, inspiring new generations.

Our work began in the late 1990s as a grassroots organization working to preserve traditional performing arts that were in danger of disappearing. For our first decade, we supported Master Artists, and set up classes where they could pass on their skills and their knowledge to young students in their communities all over the country. We focused on revival, preservation, and transmission, and the role that arts play in building identity. 


As the situation of Cambodia changed, and the arts sector grew stronger, our work evolved too. The generation of students who we first worked with had started to grow up, and wanted to make a living from the arts. We started to focus more on creating sustainable livelihoods in the arts, offering scholarships and creating performance opportunities. 


Today, artists and cultural leaders are creating new work, starting their own projects, and driving development in the sector. We see our role as a catalyst—we work to support an environment where artists can express themselves  and engage with society, and together we can create positive impacts for Cambodia through the arts.
