The Cultural Development Fund (CDF), a sector operating under the Egyptian Ministry of Culture, has started accepting entries from people with special needs for the Bokra Ahla (Tomorrow Will Be Better) Forum for Special Needs that will be held between 8 and 11 December this year.
Organised in cooperation with the Foreign Cultural Relations Sector, the forum will showcase skills in a variety of artistic/creative disciplines, such as plastic art, literary writing, singing in solo and in group, playing an instrument, theatre and performance.
In its seventh edition, the forum will showcase talents from Egypt and across the Arab World at numerous venues operating under the Cultural Development Fund, including the Talaat Harb Cultural Centre, the Beit Al-Aini Children Cultural Centre, Prince Amir Taz Palace, and Hanager Cinema on the Cairo Opera grounds.
The forum aims to shed light on the creativity of people with special needs in the fields of arts and culture. The forum's upcoming session will be the first to include participants from other Arab countries.
More information and submissions can be directed to the CDF office, located on the Cairo Opera House grounds. Tel: (02) 27357001 or (02) 27354234.
