“In advocating a sustainable ecosystem for culture, social engagement of arts, and cultural learning/understanding through the regional networks and connection, those arts and cultural activities will impact society. Jennifer believes that those activities of networking will empower cultural practitioners to emerge from current issues of being isolated from others as well as being in a position of financial fragility. Jennifer's keywords are Art, Culture, and Society; Connect, Expand, and Broker; Context, Empathy, and Cohesion.”

Mekong Cultural Hub (MCH) Our mission is to empower diverse cultural practitioners to bring their visions for an inclusive, sustainable Mekong Region to life. Since 2018, we have connected more than 150 practitioners from the region for professional exchange, co-creation and collaboration. Mekong Cultural Hub (MCH) works with people whose own work is at the intersection of arts and society. We initiate projects and work on collaborations all around Asia. Our priority focus countries are Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.
MCH addresses a systemic lack of connectivity among artists and cultural practitioners in Southeast Asia and the Mekong Region. After an initial mapping project, we identified that individual cultural practitioners, artists, and arts organizations in the Mekong Region share many of the same interests, priorities, challenges and constraints. These challenges range from a lack of resources, threats to sustainability and the environment, sensitive social and political contexts, limited access to in-country training and development, and few opportunities to exchange knowledge and collaborate with peers from neighboring countries.
Our aim is to develop and connect resources and experience from across the region, building bridges and creating spaces for reflection and innovation so emerging artists and arts leaders can collectively create, influence, and transform the contexts in which they are living and working.
MCH is a sister organization of Cambodian Living Arts, which has been working in Cambodia since 1998, and Living Arts International which is a new organization that initiates policy-driven, collaborative and transnational cultural actions, inspired by the resilience of arts communities in post-conflict contexts. The three organizations share the belief that arts are at the heart of a vital society, and this spirit is reflected throughout our programs.
