Bridging History, Present and the Future: An Egyptian Moroccan Exchange

Morocco’s oriental city and capital of Arab culture, Oudja, is the backdrop for a week-long of Egyptian cultural expressions and activities. The medley of events–which include music shows, exhibitions and an intellectual symposium–are part of an Egyptian Culture Week which aims to showcase Egypt’s rich and diverse culture while celebrating the strong spiritual and historic friendship between the two desert civilizations.

Several Egyptian and Moroccan intellectuals, writers and artists are taking part in the events, including Ambassador of Egypt in Morocco, Ashraf Ibrahim, and the Secretary-General of the Moroccan Ministry of Culture, Abdalla Afifi.

Ambassador Ibrahim confirmed that many more cultural events are lined up for the coming few months, further strengthening the deep and historic ties between the two countries. H.E. Minister of Culture Inas Abdel-Dayem inaugurated the event, as part of the celebrations of Oujda, held under the auspices of King Mohammed VI.
