On Saturday 28 May, a multimedia exhibition entitled “Walk Like an Egyptian: An Exhibit on the Egyptian Revolution,” invited citizens of the Canadian city of London, on the journey undertaken by the Egyptian people towards freedom and democracy. 

The exhibition was organised by Egyptian Asraf El Damatty, a professor of engineering at the University of Western Ontario, and founder of the Egyptian-Canadian Association of Ontario which brings together a large number of the Egyptian community.

During the exhibition, which was held from 1 pm - 5 pm, Egyptian history was presented with a look at how it has shaped the consciousness of the Egyptian people and influenced their political views.

A 45-minute video about the 25 January Revolution ran consecutively throughout the afternoon. A series of posters prepared by Lina El Shamy, the art director of the exhibition, showcased the main touristic attractions in Egypt; while others emphasised the revolution and the people’s determination against the brutality of the regime. 

The exhibition is planning to tour different locations in Canada.

Trip to Egypt
I am of Indian origin and Canadian citizen for over fifteen years. I am travelling to Egypt as I am to be in that region to deliver a lecture elsewhere. I am looking for emotional support while I am in Cairo due to the disturbances there but look forward to seeing the great pyramids.
