Arn Chorn-Pond

The Arts4Peace Festival

2019 is both the 40th year since the fall of the Khmer Rouge regime, and the 20th anniversary of Cambodian Living Arts. To mark these occasions, Cambodian Living Arts is staging the Arts4peace Festival named after Arn and his trademark - Arn4peace.
We would love for you to join us!
The festival will honor the incredible work of three generations of artists in Cambodia; from the Master Artists who kept the country’s endangered arts alive; to the students they taught who have since become teachers themselves; to the young artists writing the stories of Cambodia today.
Through performances, screenings, exhibitions, workshops, and discussions, artists across generations will express how art has impacted their lives, their communities and society, and ultimately how it has contributed to build peace for them and for the country.
Festival highlights will include:
➔ The homecoming performance of Bangsokol: A Requiem for Cambodia
➔ A special concert by The Khmer Magic Bus
➔ A tribute to Cambodia’s Master Artists
