Meeting day about the khmer identity in Montreal
Following the invitation of the Khemara Center—and as a representative of ATELIERS MONDE association—I am delighted to be in Montreal on March 28th, 2015 at 4pm at the St. Laurent Recreation Centre for a special exciting event. I will be hosting an hour-long lecture about Cambodian textiles at 4pm, to discuss the fascinating story of silk and the various traditional weavings. I will take this opportunity to show a selection of reports made in Cambodia for the World Textiles & Artisans project. This lecture will be followed by a fashion show.
It has been 35 years that the first Cambodian refugees arrived on Canadian soil. To mark this anniversary, the Khmer History and Civilisation Centre of Montreal brings Cambodia to Canada through a variety of workshops and round-table discussions, which will help to tell the story of the exiled Cambodian people and their integration into their land of welcome. During a whole day from 9am to 10pm, workshops and meetings will be highlight this multiple and rich Khmer identity. To close this exceptional program punctuated with talks and film screenings, there will be a folk dance show and a party.
Admission is free and we wish to see you all !
