Our innovative social enterprise Phare, The Cambodian Circus in Siem Reap provides career pathways for our circus performers, dancers and musicians. The profits generated contribute to support our NGO programs.
Phare Creative Studios is a Graphic Design and Animation studio. This creation hub is nested in our Visual & Applied Arts School building in Battambang, ensuring a virtuous circle of mutual development.
To keep the light of Cambodian Arts shining, we are counting on the crucial overseas support from our sister organization Phare Ponleu Selpak France with whom we are working closely to develop international outreach and funding opportunities.
Phare Productions International is managing the tours of our Cambodian Circus artists, who are now showing their talents across 4 continents. Besides, it offers customized performances in Cambodia for private or corporate events, ranging from product launches to exclusive dining experiences and gala receptions.
Visitors can see the latest products designed by the creative minds of our Visual Arts School students. They are responsibly produced and their sale is directly supporting our budding artists.
Visual and Applied Arts School
The Visual and Applied Arts School (VAAS) has blossomed from a simple drawing school into a multifaceted arts school, guiding students towards their dreams. Today, our graduates can master visual arts, graphic design and animation to be able to build successful careers in the field of their choice.
Performing Arts School
The initial circus school was founded to enable the first arts students to pour their energy and passion into a physical performance. Today, our Performing Arts School gives local youth access to circus, theatre, dance and music. The students performances are showcased on our campus in Battambang every week.
Education has been at the core of our mission since the beginning. Our government run public school and kindergarten have capacity for more than 1000 children, while our child development center and library provide them with the opportunity to broaden their horizons through diverse activities and leisure programs.
We aim to play a larger role in bringing arts directly to the surrounding communities through additional arts education campaigns and programmes. We believe that the sustainability and development of the arts and culture will only happen if the local residents have a better access to it, build a deeper appreciation of it and take an active role to make it happen.
