CICADA’s report provides new data on the status of artists and cultural workers in Cambodia

07 June 2024, Cambodia

Artists and workers in the cultural and creative industries fulfil a crucial function in the Kingdom of Cambodia, ensuring the preservation of traditional practices and arts, while simultaneously contributing to the country’s economic growth. Artists also face unique challenges, particularly in the aftermath of the pandemic, as cultural activities are often not sufficient to provide sustainable livelihoods. This situation is the focus of the report titled “Cultural and Creative Industries in Cambodia: Mapping Human Resources and Socio-Economic Conditions” published by CICADA (Creative Industries in Cambodia Association for Development and Advocacy), an organization that supports the development of the arts sector by providing training, funding, and resources to artists and cultural workers.
