FOUNDATION KNOWS WHAT MATTERS

THE Temple Garden Foundation has the right idea for the Siem Reap half-marathon race to be held at Angkor on December 7 - the NGO understands that the real needs for this race are drinks and the right t-shirt.

Temple Garden's rallying call is: "After a relaxing afternoon recovering from running a sub-90-minute race, please join us for drinks on Sunday evening at the funky bar. But it's not compulsory to do the run in order to attend the party.And we are designing some cool, retro TGF  commemorative t-shirts which will be available for purchase."

CERAMICS FESTIVAL LINE-UP TAKES SHAPE

The International Khmer Ceramics Festival from December 14-29 will feature international ceramicists including Janet Mansfield, a member of the Order of Australia for her services to the arts in Australia. She is also the publisher of two international ceramics magazines.

Canadian Alan Lacovesky, president of the Manitoba Crafts Council, and a teacher in the ceramics department at the University of Manitoba, will also be present, as will resident Laotian ceramicist, Laurence Chabard. PETER OLSZEWSKI
