5th ROUND

We are pleased to announce the opening call for participation
in the fourth and fifth rounds of Tikeya Art Residency in Egypt.

Tikeya-Logo
Tikeya is attempting to reunite with the Caravan Heritage in the Arab world. This Heritage imposed multiculturalism, networking and mutual interactions through travelling and touring. And just as it happened in the time of the old caravans, the Tikeya project will travel from one place to another and link multiple elements and networks based on friendly acquaintance with cultural and artistic actors and figures in Alexandria, Cairo and Siwa Oasis away from the direct official meetings. It will provide coexistence with the local culture. So, it is not a touristic program but focuses on starting contact and cooperation between participants.
