Recently appointed as the first Executive Director of Cambodian Living Arts, Phloeun Prim was born in Cambodia and raised in Canada since the age of three. He returned to Cambodia in 1998 and joined a European Union Program that later became a self-sustainable company, which is now Artisans d'Angkor. From its debut, the group of 50 artisans has now grown to employ over 1,000 artisans and staff and is now distributing high quality crafts in Cambodia and around the world. Phloeun will share the story of his journey as a young social entrepreneur in the arts and talk about the power of art and culture to helps transform a nation. He will be accompanied by two performers of smot chanting, a complex and demanding way of melodically reciting Khmer and Pali literature.TEDx was created in the spirit of TED's mission, "ideas worth spreading."
