Summary

The Arn Chorn-Pond Living Arts Scholarship is awarded to promising youth who wish to pursue a career in the arts. Through the scholarship program students may apply to receive one of two scholarship; Non-arts Skills for Artists (focusing primarily on academic studies), or Artistic Skills Development (focusing on specialist training to advance the student's artistic skills or the learning of new skills). Priority is given to students who cannot finance their own training.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Between 1975 and 1979, 2 million Cambodians died under the Khmer Rouge. It's believed that among the dead were 90% of Cambodia's artists, taking with them pieces of the country's history, artistic heritage, and identity. Cambodian Living Arts' original mission was to preserve traditional Cambodian art forms at risk of dying out - seeking out Master Artists and pairing them with Cambodian youth. Now, 15 years later, we are faced with a new challenge; creating the next generation of leaders.

How will this project solve this problem?

Started after a decade of operating community based classes throughout Cambodia, the Arn-Chorn Pond Scholarship program provides access to higher education and professional training in both Artistic Skills and non-artistic skills development. The scholarship program shows students with discipline and motivation that a career in the arts is possible. Through giving these bright young people access to higher education, we anticipate a dynamic and exciting cultural sector throughout Cambodia.

Potential Long Term Impact

Participation in cultural activities strengthens human resources such as creativity, knowledge, and a sense of identity. Through this program, Cambodian Living Arts envisions a vibrant cultural sector, fully staffed by qualified Cambodian professionals, who through the arts contribute to the country's artistic excellence, social inclusion, and economic growth; serving as a model for other post conflict nations.
