Prumsodun Ok, founder of Cambodia's first gay dance company, will share his journey in giving new life to the ancient art of Khmer classical dance, which was nearly destroyed during the Khmer Rouge genocide of the 1970s. Bringing together multiple cultures and approaches, the artist talks about his care for the tradition as he pushes it, creating a new face for Cambodia and for LGBTQ people that transcends pain, struggle, and violence.

The INSPIRE seminar series focuses on the role of art, artists and activism in times of violent conflict and war. In this monthly online space, with invited researchers and artists, we explore arts-based methods, collaborative methods, ethics of doing research with artists, arts as transformation, engaged scholarship; all in the context of violent conflict and war. The seminar series is part of the INSPIRE project, funded by the Research Council of Norway from 2020 to 2023.
