Background: Apsara Arts Association (AAA) is a local [Cambodian] non-governmental organization created on October 2, 1998. Cambodian culture is one of the oldest in Southeast Asia. Centuries of war, especially over the last three decades, have destroyed much in Cambodia, including arts and culture. The popularity of the traditional arts seems to be weakening, and they are threatened by non-Cambodian cultural influences coming from the outside, as well. Therefore, artists from the Royal University of Fine Arts, led by Mr. ChhaySopha and Mrs. VongMetry, collectively decided to establish the Apsara Arts Association (AAA). We are supported by the Adventurer Foundation and other anonymous charities.
Our Vision: To see Cambodian arts and culture become more valued and popular in Cambodia as a whole, as well as in the world in general, thus sustaining and developing our culture. AAA’s free training for Cambodian youth covers classical and folkloric dance, as well as traditional music.
From Monday to Saturday, except Sunday and National Ceremony Morning – 7:30 am to 10:30 am Afternoon – 2:00 pm to 5:00 pm
