Refuge, Diaspora and Return: Cosmopolitan Phnom Penh

Source: living arts city

Greeves will discuss Phnom Penh’s emergence as a cosmopolitan city during the 1950s and 1960s, when the capital of the newly independent Cambodia was planned and designed by the architect Vann Molyvann under the patronage of King Norodom Sihanouk. The lecture sets the stage for imagining the type of cultural city possible in Phnom Penh today. Morrish will respond by outlining the link between urban design and arts development, and McGrath will moderate a discussion around the type of cultural city Phnom Penh is destined to become as the capital of an emerging 21st century democracy.
