Hosted at the premises of Cairo Festival City, New Cairo from 24 February to 7 March, Diarna — the much anticipated annual handicrafts market — is back with a colorful Nubian theme.

Since Nubia is the guest of honour this year, Nubian motifs and Nubian greetings are the official decoration theme of the exhibition that will showcase hundreds of local artistic talents from all over Egypt.  

Diarna is held under the auspices of the Ministry of Social Solidarity and in partnership with the ‘Ebdaa men Masr’ flagship initiative by ALEXBANK, the Sawiris Foundation for Social Development, WE Telecom, and Cairo Festival City Mall.

The exhibition will feature live crafting shows and workshops that cannot be missed.
