Youth arts forum

Sixty young Cambodians from across the country have joined a three-week United Nations

forum, using art to form their own imagery of the future for Cambodian youth.

Through multimedia workshops involving everything from visual arts and drama to video

country, said a UN press release.

The creative process will focus on the Millennium Development Goals and will result

in a public exhibition on September 29 at the Ministry of Women's Affairs.
