The Phnom Penh Writers Workshop is a regular gathering of Phnom Penh writers who are interested in discussion and critique of their works in progress. The next workshop will be held Sunday 29– if you would like to be involved, please contact Carly Nugent (cnfrizzle [at] gmail.com).

Just launched, a special appeal by Java Arts, raising money for artists hit by last month’s fire at the rear of the café.   The work of eight artists: Anida Yoeu Ali, Chath PierSath, Genevieve Marot, Neak Sophal, Nicolas C Grey, Oeur Sokuntevy, Qudy Xu-Min and William Graef are valued at $20,000 and accounts for about 10% of the available works on the art market in Cambodia.”  The Java Arts Fire Relief Fund is being run through Indiegogo.

At the same time, Amrita Performing Arts looks to the future with Next Steps, and asks for assistance in the establishment of a residency for young Khmer choreographers. Check out the Indiegogo pitch for this exciting new project.

The Cambodian festival season continues next week with the Cambodian International Film Festival in Phnom Penh from Friday 4 December  through to Thursday 10, crossing over with the Angkor Photo Festival Saturday 5 December though to Saturday 12.

For a more rock’n’roll musical flavour of Phnom Penh, make sure you follow weekly gig guide LengPleng.com as well.
