Phloeun Prim - "Focusing on the Young Cultural Innovators Is Creating the Hope"

YCI Fellow brings the Salzburg Global experience to Cambodia Phloeun Prim speaks at the Young Cultural Innovators session.

Next year marks the 40th anniversary of the Cambodian genocide, where millions were slaughtered—including 90 percent of the country's artists and intellectuals—by perpetrators of the Khmer Rouge government.

Inspired by his experiences at Salzburg Global sessions, Phloeun Prim plans to gather leaders from post-conflict and post-genocide nations to convene in Cambodia to discuss genocides of the past and present, and to discuss preventative measures for the future.

In a new interview, Prim talks about the Cambodian genocide, his experience at the Schloss, and the value in launching the Young Cultural Innovators forum—Salzburg Global's 10-year initiative to support and nurture young leaders in the arts and culture sectors. To Prim, YCI means investing in the future and "creating the hope." Watch the full interview below.

Prim was also recently featured in the new Salzburg Global Chronicle as one of "15 Faces for the Future."
