Kumnooh: Cambodia arts for week commencing 26 May, 2015

Greetings,

Opening tonight Tuesday 26 at MetaHouse at 6 pm, a poster exhibition Creativity In The Cities that depicts creative spaces in east and south east Asia and Europe. “The core objective is to increase awareness that culture and creativity can be considered as key assets of urban development and that creative spaces may serve as a visual spatial symbol to connect art with city space and citizens. […] Nowadays, the value of creative spaces lies not only in economic possibilities, but in their intrinsic value as vehicles for the preservation of (industrial) cultural heritage and promotion of the arts.” From 8 pm a panel of local arts figures will discuss the developments and inspirations for the arts in Phnom Penh.
