Just over ten years ago, we first met Billy Gorter, Founder and Executive Director of This Life Cambodia (TLC) in Siem Reap, Cambodia. We still remember his excitement and enthusiasm when he first told us about how he was approached by members of a community just outside the centre of Siem Reap who had big dreams of starting a community centre in their village.
Epic Arts is an Inclusive Arts NGO based in Cambodia providing education and opportunities for deaf, disabled and non-disabled people and their parents.
Since it’s initial opening in Cambodia with a few workshops in Phnom Penh, they has grown to include the popular Epic Arts Cafe in Kampot and a purpose built fully accessible Arts Centre. Many of the graduates from their early projects now work for Epic Arts as staff and act as advocates for many young disabled people in Cambodia.
