• To encourage the diversity, specificity and vibrancy of Egypt cultural scene as a strategy to counter cultural uniformity, consumerism and an increasing intolerance for the marginal.
  • To contribute to dialogue among people from different cultures through an intense process of artistic production.
  • To participate in safeguarding Egyptian cultural memory by researching and documenting its intangible cultural heritage and by encouraging the re-establishment of popular traditions and social festivals.
  • To present Egyptian oral and traditional arts as they are now, rarely, practiced to a wide audience.

“If we continue to allow the erosion of our cultural forms, soon there will be no place to visit and no place to truly call home.”
