Our City Festival 2010

Now in its third year, the Our City festival of 2010 has once again brought together members of the arts community to celebrate and stimulate dialogues on the theme of architecture and urban design.

For this year’s festival, several events have been lined up including “Imaginary Home,” the second architecture competition hosted by the French Cultural Centre; “Hawker’s Song,” a video/sound installation, created by JavaArts and Greyspace; photography, painting, architectural studies, film screenings and talks.  See the complete list below.  Newcomers to the 2010 edition include the Bophana Audiovisual Resource Center, The Vann Molyvann Project, Heritage Mission and Sahmakum Teang Tnaut.

A new feature this year is a webpage that includes a calendar of events, profiles and a blog on the activities (www.javaarts.org/ourcity/) both in English and Khmer. Updates on events and additional programming will be listed there.

Our City, a JavaArts project, works through a network of arts organizations to build programs and events locally as well to initiate international collaborations.  Our City is exploring how to further engage the public in future events and projects around questions of globalization, architecture and urban design.
