Searching for an Authentic Gallery Cafe

Being an avid supporter of the arts and having lived in Phnom Penh for quite some time, I've noticed that most local boutique coffee shops follow the corporate cafe model rather than acting to promote the arts. Most don't show original pieces, don't develop a space for dialogue with speakers, or sell artists' work. The Java Cafe and Gallery, which features regular monthly exhibitions, is an exception to the rule. The famous Meta House has also taken on a prominent position in the local art scene, showing free nightly documentary films and providing ample gallery space on its first two floors. I'm writing to users to tell them about a new project called the Beoung Kekong Community Arts Initiative hosted by the Haha Cafe on Street 278, directly behind the Sihanouk Boulevard location of Lucky Supermarket. The Haha, run by Cambodian musician Sam Seyhaa, is now liaising with the local arts initiative to accept artwork submissions. Their intimate cafe provides free wifi, cheap and delicious food and great lounge space. Come share your artwork and support creativity in Phnom Penh. report a problem
