Diocese Of Egypt


The Arkan Centre, based at St Mark’s Pro-Cathedral in downtown Alexandria, is a place where Egyptian youth from all corners of society, both Christian and Muslim, come together and create art. The Arkan Centre supports talented young artists by providing facilities for producing and displaying youth artwork, and also hosts cultural and artistic workshops.


In the Arkan Centre, artistic expression opens up forums for discussion that invite people to new perspectives and ideas:  a quiet challenge to intolerant attitudes.  As the lives of youth from many different backgrounds intersect, we see bridges of peace and friendship gradually replacing walls of intolerance and fear.
