Arts Education makes the curriculum in Cambodia

Student focuses on creating

Our project has been running for over 2 years now and our team has seen a big impact for the children taking part in the workshops. Our Facilitators are very proud of the project and the children they’ve taught. They told me that they wished they could’ve taken part in arts at an earlier age.

“I can see a difference in the children. When they first join the workshop they are shy about performing but at the end of the term all the children are confident to perform in front of the whole school!” – Thou, Team Leader.

 “I went to a NGO run school for children with disabilities and luckily arts was on the curriculum there. I got to find my passion for the arts when I was young.” – Savun, Facilitator 

 “I wish I had the chance to take part in dance and drama when I was a kid! I think it is a good way for the children to use their energy & creativity in a good way” – Teuly, Facilitator

In Cambodia the arts aren’t part of the national curriculum but this is changing.

In early 2017, our partners Cambodia Living Arts signed a five-year MoU with the Ministry of Education to pilot the implementation of arts education at Cambodian public schools.

Thanks to lobbying from CLA and other arts organisations around Cambodia, the ministry is now adapting their long-term strategy & focus from STEM to STEAM – Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Math.

Epic Arts are proud to partner with Cambodia Living Arts and share our resources in Arts Education.  

We created the ‘Arts in Schools’ project because we think it’s vital for children to use their creativity in an arts setting. When we started the project we hoped that in the future every child in Cambodia could take part in art activities as part of their education. It looks like it might not take as long as we’d thought!
