Season of Cambodia (April 13 - May 13) is a special initiative of Cambodian Living Arts in partnership with Cambodia’s leading arts organizations and New York’s most vibrant cultural and academic institutions. The Festival features more than 125 Cambodian performing and visual artists at New York City’s stages, screens, galleries and public spaces, creating a broad and dynamic platform for Cambodia’s cultural treasures to be shared with an international audience.
The festival celebrates Cambodia’s artistic revival just one generation removed from the Khmer Rouge regime (1975-1979), a dark period in Cambodia’s history during which nearly 90% of the artists and intellectuals were
tragically eliminated in an effort to devastate a flourishing artistic community. Season of Cambodia, then, will serve as an international platform that not only highlights the extraordinary resilience of the Cambodian
nation and its artists, and also sets the stage for other post-conflict nations seeking renewal through artistic expression. For more information www.seasonofcambodia.org.
