CULTURAL AND ARTISTIC DEVELOPMENT
To enable the children to benefit from their cultural heritage and grow by (re)discovering their traditions, arts and crafts.
From the outset in the refugee camps, Krousar Thmey set up cultural exhibitions for the general public – such as the exhibition “Rice fields : two cultures to be discovered”, in all the camps on the Thai border in 1992 – and initiated art courses for children: music, traditional dances and shadow theater were to continue to live beyond their old masters. Nowadays, the program is divided into two parts: the School of Khmer arts and culture open all year, and art classes in the structures of the association for all children in care.
