The Khmer Rouge’s assault on the arts was a terrible blow to Cambodian culture. Indeed, for a number of years the common consensus among Khmers was that their culture had been irrevocably lost. The Khmer Rouge not only did away with living bearers of the Khmer culture, it also destroyed cultural artifacts, statues, musical, instruments, books and anything else that served as a reminder of a past it was trying to efface. The temples of the Angkor were spared as a symbol of Khmer glory and empire, but little else survived. Our aim is to revive our arts and to spread the root of Khmer Arts to young people of Cambodian.
