Event description

Description

More than 60% of the Cambodian population is under 30, born after the fall of the Khmer Rouge regime and have limited knowledge of what happened during this time.

Booking is free but required here.

With the support of the European Union and Rei Foundation Limited, Bophana Center, in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, has been developing a smart device application to help younger generations understand more about Khmer Rouge history.

Consisting of information validated by Cambodian and international experts in history, this educational app witnesses personal and collective histories of Khmer Rouge regime through diverse audiovisual content, findings of Extraordinary Chambers in the Courts of Cambodia (ECCC) and Khmer Rouge survivors’ voices.

The director of the Bophana Center, Sopheap Chea, will visit Objectspace to share the learnings and complexities of gathering such diverse and personal content when creating an online app.

Sopheap Chea is the executive director of the Bophana Audiovisual Resource Center and a project manager for the Khmer Rouge app project. He has worked with the Bophana Center for more than a decade. Sopheap holds a critical view of knowledge-sharing in the digital era, having worked on the Khmer Rouge History app with limited information available to him and the added challenge of recognising valid sources.
