Using their Facebook page, the Alexandria's Jesuit Cultural Centre launched a series of online videos aiming at bringing creative art forms to the audiences at home. 
Titled Connected by Light and spearheaded by the centre's director Fadi George, the initiative showcases artists in discussion, performances and lectures on how to deal with quarantine realities and their impact on our psychology.
Launched last month, the initiative has already attracted a large number of viewers, while the centre has set a fixed schedule for numerous programmes.
Among the online activities is 'Cima El Jesuit' presented by Shady Gamal conducting live interviews with the Egyptian filmmakers.
The most recent live performances include recitals by pianist Michel Eskandar (11 April), Khalta Beta band (8 April), singers Yassen Mahgoub (3 April) and Noha Fekry (2 April, among others.
Reflecting on the Easter celebrations, the centre also holds a live performance of sacred arias and traditional Byzantine hymns performed by Mireille Banoub (15 April) and Coptic traditional hymns presented by Nawar Nashed (15 April).
One of the live videos has brought the viewers closer to the Capoeira, an artistic form of martial art, in a session presented by Issam Khatib (9 April).
In parallel the centre holds live discussions with specialists talking about psychology of isolation and how to deal with the current circumstances where we need to practice social distancing.
In parallel Fadi George presents the daily transformation leadership sessions.
