Born in 2014, formally declared association law 1901 in December 2015, the Develop Boeung Kak Art association is the result of a project led by two French women. Ludivine and Marjolaine were interested by Cambodia’s history and particularly by the history of a lake of 90 hectares in the heart of Phnom Penh, which was sold to a Chinese company and filled with sand for economic purposes. This led to shave almost the entire neighborhood and the expulsion of about 4,000 families that were expelled with much violence, traumatizing local residents of Boeung Kak. The economy is reduced to zero and the place becomes a benchmark for drug dealers. They then both decided to propose a social art project & solidarity, to attempt a reconciliation with the past.
Since then, a lot of changes were made, and the district of Boeung Kak Lake is now known to be Phnom Penh’s booming street art scene. DBK ART association organized many events for help the neighborhood to be attractive. In 2 years more than 40 artists came for paint Boeung Kak’s walls from all around the world
The concept is to use art and solidarity to be reborn.
The organization articulates its actions around 4 axes :
★ Culture & Art
The new project of the school needs your support. The program is for help 30 children offering them free classes around languages, culture & art.
