The Ministry of Antiquities, Swedish Institute of Alexandria, and the Danish Egyptian Dialogue Institute have jointly hosted a unique festival under the theme “People and Heritage”. The festival ran from 13 to 15 October, and was held in five governorates at the same time: Cairo, Alexandria, Port Said, Minya and Mansoura.
Aiming at puting people and their tangible heritage in one proper sentence, the programme included walks, sketching contests, cycling tours, and concerts set in historic locations. The purpose was to bridge the gap between people’s architectural gems and their daily lives.
