What we do
Over 1000 students are empowered every year through our schools and programs: performing, visual, and applied arts leisure classes, and vocational training aid children and young adults to develop their creativity, communication, and concentration skills, and to access a sustainable artistic career whilst preserving and promoting Cambodian arts and culture.
Help us spread a passion for the arts across Cambodia. We believe that all children, regardless of their background, deserve to have access to the healing powers of the arts. Our artistic training provides art therapy as well as professional skills that lead to lasting employment. Your donation directly supports these programs.
Come see a show!
Multiple times a week, you can experience circus shows by our talented students. Shows take place on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday from 7pm, and tickets are bought directly at the campus.
Visit the campus
Mornings and afternoons, Monday to Friday, we welcome you on free guided tours of our vibrant campus.
Sponsor a child
When you join our child sponsorship program, your monthly gift gives our most at-risk students the aid and support they need to stay in school and pursue their passions.
Volunteer with us
We welcome committed and passionate volunteers who have specific expertise or experience which fills a current need. Those needs change over time, but some examples of skills often needed are in social media, communications, IT, lighting and sound design, merchandising and customer service.
Do you believe in the power of the arts as a tool for human development and social change? If this is you, join our team! Check out our open positions here.
