In 2016, Bamboo Curtain Studio (BCS) and Cambodian Living Arts (CLA) co-hosted “Cultural Leadership Exchange Program” between Taiwan and Cambodia. BCS invited four senior art managers from Cambodia: HUOT Dara, ONN Sokny, SO Phina, and SONG Seng to Taiwan for two weeks residency. Frances Rudgard from CLA worked with the BCS team to coordinate the program. In these two weeks, the four shared deep discussion with many culture and art organizations in Taiwan. Also, they learned about cultural policies in Taiwan, different business models of the organizations, vision and mission of each team and so on. In the conversations, both Taiwan and Cambodia teams shared knowledge and experience, including difficulties that they encounter and what possible solutions each one could provide. This first exchange was a great opportunity to build up the relationship between Taiwan and Cambodia in the art and culture field. At the same time, it was also an opportunity to reflect at a high level about what is cultural leadership in our countries? Who is a cultural leader?

交流與未來展望 The opportunities come up from the exchange : 在本次拜訪臺灣藝文團隊相談中,期待未來交流的可能。認識在地文化,是構思未來的重要基底。 Since the four Cambodia cultural leaders visited and had meetings with professional partners in Taiwan, they have more picture about Taiwan art scene and are looking forward to the exchanging or collaboration in the future. + 在地社群與教育機構的文化推廣 Share and Exchanging by Local Communities, Educational Institutes + 藝文工作者的工作方式, 空間與藝術創作 Art and Cultural Partnersʼ Work, Space, and Ways of Production + 國際交流與藝文活動 International Exchange and Cultural Events + 文本創作與多元價值推廣 The Creation of Content, and Spread of Multi-Value

The first work of the organisation was to revive and preserve traditional music, dance and theatre of Cambodia. After the Khmer Rouge regime, 90% of the artists had died and the culture was at risk. For the first ten years, CLA worked to support master artists to teach their skills to the young generation, in pagodas, schools and homes all over the country. As Cambodia developed, CLA also developed its programs to offer more support to the growth of the arts sector. Today CLA works with artists, arts managers and other organisations to develop skills, offer training opportunities, provide resources and stimulate creative expression. CLA believes that the arts are at the heart of a vital and sustainable society.

model in the organization and how to sustain both yourself as an individual as well as the organization. Once the leader has left, how can the impact of their work continue? It is really a very important homework which might take a life- time practice. Having a clear vision is an essential leadership ability. Good networking is another key skill. How to bridge different individual, groups, public sectors and private sectors together? Each one could find a balance through sharing. Of course, don't forget to guide and support future leaders. Once we gather all these energy together, it would improve overall cultural environment. Around 40 participants came to the workshop. Many of them are art administrators, but some of them were artists, directors, curators, public servants, students and so on. “Cultural Leadership” is quite a new topic in Taiwan, whereas it is something that has been being worked on and discussed in Cambodia for a longer period. This is another good example of collaboration between Taiwan and Cambodia. One of the key conclusions of the workshop was that these 21st century leaders, are looking to have a wider impact through their work; they don't just work for arts and culture, but they believe in the power of arts and culture to make positive change.

experiences, methods of peaceful protest and knowledge of organic food and environmental action.” Phina described the artists and managers as “Unofficial Goodwill Ambassadors”. Through spending time with Taiwanese professionals in person, with time to understand their work from the structural level to their individual experience, Fellows took away a lasting impression that making change or revolution in the art and culture field takes a long time and sustained effort. Although there are some cultural similarities, there are also differences in identity and history of the two countries. Practices also reflect and connect to local lifestyle and culture, for example when thinking about “what is the role of art and culture in Taiwaneseʼ daily life?”, the Fellows observed that compared to Cambodia, the Taiwanese more frequently go to exhibitions and performances for leisure and will pay for culture. Taiwanese artists and cultural workers shared that this custom developed and took many years, and much effort from many artists and administrators, to create a better environment. As well as building audiences, there have been other criticism, art education, and how to be interactive with audiences. One important issue that was discussed salaries, but also having enough work available in the arts, that artists do not have to seek jobs outside of the arts sector in order to survive. A shared aim of the Fellows and the artists and cultural workers they met was to have a positive impact by supporting young people in the arts to make a better future. Fellows met with people from many perspectives, from grassroots artists to government legislators, and discussed issues of art, culture, education, and cultural policy. It is clear that these areas are tightly related, and one of the skills and responsibilities of a cultural leader is to be able to bridge different disciplines, and different perspectives. For instance, they discussed the role of the arts manager in having dialogue between public and private sectors, and between policymakers and small groups of audience and communities, so

The idea of “no plastic”, the way citizens behave while in the Taipei Metro, and “great accessible system for people with disabilities.” impressed them. The Fellows loved the natural environment in the Zhuwei area, and BCS surroundings; they also found great benefits in learning from each other, ”we understand each other more deeply on both personal and professional levels”. They wonder, “how about having a micro-residency in Cambodia?” From both experiencing daily life and participating in an intensive schedule of meetings and discussions,

Taiwan, the language, history, the funding and working environment of the arts, both two sides see many opportunities for partnership and are making plans for collaboration starting in the very near future.

+ 藝文規模多樣化 Big possibilities from small spaces 柬埔寨夥伴們在臺參訪兩週,對於臺灣「藝文規模的多樣化」印象特別深刻。在柬埔寨,成功與專業的藝文設施、場 館或「節慶」所指的多半是大規模的。然而在臺灣,活動、節慶、劇場或博物館都可以相對地「小」,卻深具影響力。 Phina說,大小真的不重要,Dara也在認為場地不需非得完美、正式不可。事實上,藉著不同規模的藝文展演,創作者 更有機會去實驗,也讓創作者處理特定的題材,有相應的精確觀眾,不一定需要訴諸大型展演空間裡的大規模觀眾。 Song以拜訪燦爛時光書店與大大樹音樂圖像為例,臺灣不同規模的平台,有著豐沛的動能與影響力: 「他們像是創 造出一個Hub,一個給藝術和非藝術領域人們來學習與分享的空間,可作為開會或分享會之用。」,也對於現地錄製 音樂印象深刻。而文化歷史場所如思劇場,團隊夥伴們舉辦沙龍、與在地許多夥伴合辦「大稻埕國際藝術節」,更深 信節慶應來自於在地社群。 For the Fellows, when they came from Cambodia, the idea of a successful and professional facility, venue, or “festival” was that it is usually large scale. What they saw time and time again in Taiwan, was that small scale activities, festivals, theaters, or museums can still have a large impact. During one visit in Taipei, Phina said, “Size does not really matter.” As Dara mentioned, it is not necessary to be a fancy, formal space; in fact, the varied usage of these small scale spaces and activities, “let artists take risks and be more creative.” Furthermore, they allow artists to engage with a specialist audience, interested in a topic or experience that could not sustain a big audience in a big venue. Seng was impressed with both The Brilliant Time Bookstore and The Trees and Music, etc, as examples of using small spaces to make a big impact: “ Creating the spaces as a hub for artists and non-artists to come to learn, share, and experiment about arts and culture such as presentation, conference, etc.”. All Fellows were very inspired by work to record rural artists on location in their original site, instead of making them come to the studio. The Thinkers Theater, which connects to the history and culture of the area and the idea of “salons”, inspired Fellows with their philosophy that the festival comes from communities and the people.
