CLA is a non-profit organization based in Cambodia that focuses on Cambodian arts. CLA implements a series of programs, following the process of creating a sustainable environment where Cambodian arts can empower individuals and communities.
As part of its Community Arts program, Cambodians learn traditional arts; motivated students get opportunities to improve their skills as arts professionals in the Capacity Building program; CLA’s Creative Industries program creates regular, well-paid work for arts professionals in the arts sector, while raising awareness about Cambodian traditional arts among foreigners and Cambodians.
As a true springboard for arts professionals, the Traditional Dance Show presented by Cambodian Living Arts On Stage plays an integral role in this program. After 2 years of performing on the National Museum’s stage, the Morodok Komar Bassac now receives at least two requests per month for private performances, and we have been able to introduce new artists and troupes to the stage.
