The National Museum of Cambodia, in collaboration with the Apsara National Authority (ANA), will host an online lecture on “Cultural Heritage along the Tonle Sap Lake and the Mekong River” on September 9.
Themed “Water and Khmer Civilisation”, the lecture will be delivered by Im Sokrithy, director of the ANA’s Department of Research, Training and Communication.
“I will speak about the places we live and our annual traditions associated with water during the rainy season – like flood prevention through ceremonies. I want to address water-related traditions that still play an important role in Khmer society. We want them to know how important water is in Khmer civilisation,” he said.
