OUR WORK: Heritage Hub

PROGRAM: Works with all our programs
AIMED AT: The arts community in Cambodia and beyond, and the Siem Reap community


The Heritage Hub is a branch of CLA located in Siem Reap. It supports CLA’s wider mission; to be a catalyst in a vibrant arts sector, inspiring new generations. The Heritage Hub focusses especially on strengthening living heritage – the range of cultural and artistic practices that are part of people’s lives, from music to ritual, crafts, and even food and social interactions. Our current priority is traditional performing arts.

The Heritage Hub works through and with CLA’s four core programs, providing guidance, leadership, and expertise wherever projects relate to the living heritage of Cambodia. The Heritage Hub takes the lead on projects that link strongly to Siem Reap and traditional performing arts.

Some of our projects are:

Heritage Hub Mission

We strengthen living arts and culture to bring cultural, creative and economic value to Cambodia, especially Siem Reap.

Our goals are:

  1. Make Siem Reap known in Cambodia and the region as a center for people who want to connect with Cambodia’s living heritage
  2. Ensure Cambodian artists in Siem Reap have the skills and opportunities they need to earn a sustainable living using their art skills
  3. Increase knowledge about Cambodia’s living heritage by providing training, funding, resources and networks to researchers, especially emerging Cambodian researchers
  4. Increase mutual understanding between people and awareness of shared by culture by facilitating artistic exchange and dialogue within Asia, especially the Mekong Region
  5. Keep the living arts relevant to Cambodia today, by encouraging creativity among traditional artists.
