The festival reconnected the Phnom Penh’s population with a site of historical significance and also gave the city an opportunity to celebratethe White Building as an active and creative community or micro-city.The festival turned the neighbourhood into a large collaborative and shared space of creativity.Demystified, those who typically avoid the White Building learnt about its history and the creativity it houses.As a public festival,Bonn Phum Nov Bo-Ding activated the building and surrounding environment through art, architecture and ideas. On a deeper level, and as one part of Our City Festival, this socially engaged, participatory project acted as a catalyst for discourse on the role of the arts in society.
