The Hakawy International Arts Festival for Children returns in its seventh edition, building on six years of success
The seventh edition of the Hakawy International Arts Festival for Children runs in Cairo between 7 and 12 March at Hanager Arts Centre, and then will proceed to Alexandria on 14 March at the Jesuit Garage, and on 16 March in Luxor’s Youth Village El-Tud.
This edition includes storytelling, puppet theatre and object theatre shows, as well as workshops for children.
The festival's line-up includes theatre plays from the US, UK, Germany and Egypt.
Hakawy Festival is organised by AFCA, an independent organisation aiming to use the arts as a tool in child education. Using Arabic, French, and English languages in its programmes, AFCA encourages child and youth creativity while developing personal skills.
