S’ART URBAN ART FESTIVAL
S’Art, a wordplay on the Khmer phrase ‘saat’ or “beautiful”, stands for the concept that art is an organic part of life in the city. This biennial event is taking over from TINI TINOU in alternate years. During 5 days, the quiet streets of Battambang come to life with concerts, mural paintings and other live happenings and urban arts workshops, ending up with the long-awaited Giant Puppet parade.
CHUMNOR ART FESTIVAL
Initially conceived during COVID, Ros is a two-day festival filled with food and art taking place right here at the Phare campus. A community-focused cornucopia of circus, theatre, graphic design, music, visual arts, dance, animation, exhibitions, workshops and food.
