CKS Participates in Siem Reap Giant Puppet Project


Once again, the Center for Khmer Studies (CKS) contributed its beautiful space for the Siem Reap Giant Puppet Project, which brings together vulnerable children and youth under the guidance of theatrical performance experts and NGO workers to foster and promote self expression and confidence through art.

The 2016 project brought awareness about local wildlife such as the water buffalo, the Cambodian lizard, the red ant, the caterpillar, and the monkey. This event continues to grow in size in support of local children and communities - and this year thousands of people gathered in town to see the parade and celebrate the auspicious year of the Monkey!
