Creative Generation is a platform to launch Cambodia’s new artistic talents by celebrating, mentoring and inspiring young creatives to cultivate a strong artistic vision and professional skills. It formalizes and deepens the work of Java Creative Café which runs a family of cafes and community art spaces and has been modelling cultural enterprise in Cambodia for nearly two decades.
Since the year 2000, Artistic Director Dana Langlois has been mentoring and providing opportunities to Cambodia’s emerging artistic voices, many of whom have gone on to establish international careers as artists and curators. In 2017, Langlois established the Creative Generation award program in the same spirit, while expanding further into the creative fields, building new connections and supporting the growing number of art and design graduates and young artists.
