We think that these research topics would make valuable contributions to knowledge about arts and culture in Cambodia.

Please get in touch with us at if you are interested in exploring any of the following:

  • Update the Performing Arts Employment Survey CLA undertook in 2013/4
  • Conduct a tracer study of Arn Chorn-Pond Scholarship Students  and/or of students from the Secondary School of Fine Arts or the Royal University of Fine Arts
  • Market research into Cambodian audiences (what, when, where, how do different segments of Cambodian audiences want to consume performing arts and how much are they willing to pay for it?)
  • Research the role, access and rights of indigenous cultures in the arts in Cambodia
  • Research the perception of activist art in Cambodia
  • Conduct a feasibility study of a micro-commissioning program for young composers/curators/choreographers/etc

  • Study the role of young people as intermediaries in audience development and individual art production
  • Study of how Cambodia’s orally transmitted traditions might survive in the digital age
  • Research the relationship between funding diversity and cultural diversity

  • Feasibility study of engaging diaspora communities (e.g. in France, the U.S. or Australia) more strongly in cultural activities in Cambodia, and ways in which this could take place
  • Does Cambodia need a national arts festival?
  • Does Cambodia need an international arts festival?
