Britcham in the Community: Charity Art Auction hosted by Chhan Dina

Britcham Cambodia is supporting the work and efforts of established Cambodian artist and art teacher Chhan Dina, as she looks to find ways to develop the Arts and Culture sector in Cambodia. We will be hosting a charity auction organised by Dina, showcasing work by her and by others from the Cambodian visual arts community.

Dina is a former fellow of nonprofit organisation Cambodian Living Arts'  "Living Arts Fellows" program, a year-long personal and professional development program for artists and arts managers. In January 2017, the Fellows organised an art fair at Sisowath High School in Phnom Penh. Following this program, Dina was inspired to lead this auction event in collaboration with artists and friends, to raise funds to support more arts education activities for young people in Cambodia.

The proceeds from this auction will support an arts program in Sisophon, Banteay Meanchey Province, run by Krousar Thmey organisation. This centre provides opportunities for young people in nearby schools and communities to learn visual and performing arts.

Check out some of the art that will be on display on the evening below:
