We have a dream,
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 workshop and 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, practised, to a wide audience.
