We are a social enterprise
Starting 10 years ago as a vocational animation and graphic design studio, we have nurtured our inspiration and experience to become in August 2016, The Phare Creative Studio a social business model operated by Phare Performing Social Enterprise Co., Ltd.
Phare Creative Studio is working with a group of talented artists trained at the Visual & Applied Art School (VAAS).
With the ambition to reveal the Cambodians’ creativity, we are developing our studio in the heart of our mother organization, Phare Ponleu Selpak Association, in Battambang city.
We pursue 3 complimentary social missions :
> Provide gainful employment, personal and career development to young creative Cambodians
> Provide long-standing support to the Visual & Applied Art School (VAAS) from Phare Ponleu Selpak Association
> Contribute to the rebirth of Cambodian modern art
