The Ard El Lewa neighbourhood “is a section of that mushrooming belt of slums surrounding Greater Cairo” according to Artellewa Director, Hamdy Reda. And this is what gave rise to the creation of Artellewa as a space for art that directly serves the people of the neighbourhood, so as to link them with the broader cultural scene in Cairo and the world at large. In addition to hosting art exhibits and installations for artists, Artellewa offer painting workshops for children, mime workshops and creative writing workshops for imaginative youth aged 15 to 25.
