Applications for our Dam Dos (‘Plant and Grow’) small grants are now open! These aim to give artists and others working in the arts and culture sector the opportunity to develop new and creative projects, or to improve their skills through trainings, workshops, and conferences. We want to create opportunities for groups and individuals to advance the Cambodian arts and culture sector, especially for those who have not had access to similar opportunities before
Bangsokol: A Requiem for Cambodia is an extraordinary new composition fusing music, voice, movement, and film. It is the first major symphonic work to address the traumas of the late 1970s in Cambodia, blending elements of Cambodian traditional music with the Western requiem and bangsokol, a ceremony accompanying Buddhist funeral rites. It tells a universal and urgent story; the story of a society confronting moral devastation and reclaiming its humanity through reconciliation and healing.
