The Mahatat for Contemporary Art was set up by five women of different nationalities and cultural backgrounds but with a common interest in contemporary art and a concern by the centralization that kept art in Egypt restricted to certain segments of society. The initiative aims to make art available to broader sectors of the populace in a decentralized way. Trough the “Our Street” project Mahatat is promoting art in public spaces throughout the country.
