We Have a Dream…
- To encourage the diversity, specificity and vibrancy of Egypt's cultural scene as a strategy to counter cultural uniformity, consumerism and an increasing intolerance for the marginal.
- To contribute to dialogue among people from different cultures through an intense process of artistic production.
- To participate in safeguarding Egyptian cultural memory by researching and documenting its intangible cultural heritage and by encouraging the re-establishment of popular traditions and social festivals.
- To present Egyptian oral and traditional arts as they are now, rarely, practised to a wide audience. 

If we continue to allow the erosion of our cultural forms, soon there will be no place to visit and no place to truly call home.
