Our History


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.

Phare Creative Studio is working with a group of talented artists trained at the Visual and Applied Art School (VAAS) to design innovative and original content in 2D animation, Graphic Design, Illustration, Video and Sound Recording under the same roof.

With the ambition to reveal the Cambodians’ creativity, we are developing our studio in the heart of our mother organization, Phare Ponleu Selpak, in Battambang city.

Phare Ponleu Selpak, the power of arts for human development and social change.

Phare Ponleu Selpak Association (PPSA) or “The Brightness of the Arts” is a non-profit Cambodian association improving the lives of children, young adults, and their families since 1994. With educational programs, a Visual and Applied Arts School, a Performing Arts School and social support, Phare Ponleu Selpak seeks to provide education, access to the arts, vocational training, and professional pathways to children and young adults. In 2013, with the aim of financial self-sufficiency, PPSA created Phare Performing Social Enterprise (PPSE). Under the umbrella of PSSE are : Phare Creative Studio but also Phare, The Cambodian Circus and Phare Productions International.
