From Threatened to Thriving!
Across the globe, artists are losing their cultural heritage, supporting their art contributes to their survival. Save World Art gives artists a platform to promote their art, raise their standard of living and improve their local economy.

DISCOVER AN ARTIST
Ancient art forms, and the artists who create them, are becoming harder to locate and assist. Nominate an indigenous artist that deserves exposure.
We appreciate your support. Share your expertise, artistic discoveries and handicrafts. Monetary donations from U.S. residents are 100% tax deductible.
Our Inaugural Project
Reasmey Angkor Bassac Opera Company in Cambodia
Save World Art discovered and raised awareness for the endangered Reasmey Angkor Bassac Opera Company in Cambodia. To help sustain their art and livelihood, we provided a truck and helped dig a well and a fishing pond for sustenance. We’ve begun construction of a permanent site which they have never had. We urge you to take a moment to watch this short film about this indigenous art form which was nearly annihilated by the Khmer Rouge.
Please join us in empowering, promoting and celebrating indigenous artists of the past, present and future. We are striving to save artistic heritage and art forms around the world from extinction.
