Cambodian rapper Poukhlaing will be performing at the upcoming MTV EXIT National Anti-Trafficking Roadshows in Koh Kong on 9 June, including Banteay Meanchey on 30 June and Siem Reap on 28 July.
The first two series of roadshows took place in the provincial municipality of Prey Veng and Kampong Chum, which centered on a series of engaging music performances by young leading musicians, dancers, and comedians. Educational workshops and interactive sessions were conducted where youth participated on the development of art murals with two young professional visual artists. The art murals were displayed in public areas in the respective provinces to further spread anti-trafficking messages.
The roadshows also traveled around the provincial level districts with a giant inflatable screen to conduct special screenings of the documentary film entitled, Enslaved: An MTV EXIT Special, hosted by MTV EXIT’s Celebrity Ambassador to Cambodia, Dr Chea Samnang, revealing the real-life issues of this horrific crime affecting Cambodians.
The National Trafficking-in-Persons Prevention Roadshows are produced by MTV EXIT in collaboration with NC to lead S.T.S.L.S. and in partnership with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the Australian Government’s Agency for International Development (AusAID), the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), Winrock International, Khmer Youth Association (KYA), Cellcard, and Cambodian Television Network (CTN).
