Gusour Cultural Center in Zamalek, affiliated with the Episcopal/ Anglican Church in Egypt, will host journalist Ibrahim Issa in an open meeting on Saturday, February 12 at 7:00 pm at the Gusour Cultural Center in Zamalek.
This is due to the center’s belief in the role of culture and books in raising awareness and creating a dialogue based on the great writer signing copies of his novel “A Bullet in the Head” for his fans and fans, as Gusour Center provides copies of them.
It is worth mentioning that the vision of Gusour Cultural Center is to build bridges of love between all members of society with their different cultures and backgrounds through art, music, and culture. Gusour Center hosts about 4,000 people annually.
The idea of establishing the Gusour Center came when the Episcopal Church saw what the Egyptian people lived through in the past years during the revolutions, January 25, 2011, and June 30, 2013, and how the people expressed their dreams of freedom, democracy, social justice, and a decent life. However, they passed through a period of violence, extremism, and discrimination, and this period showed The importance of building the Egyptian person and restoring the values that prevailed in Egypt in the past, and the Church saw that it is her duty as a national institution to contribute as much as it can to the return of beautiful Egypt by strengthening harmony among the people’s spectra and acceptance and respect for the other, as the Church found that arts, literature, and music are the language that combines between Peoples of different sects, it is a language that unites and does not divide, hence the idea of establishing Gusour Cultural Center in the service building attached to All Saints Cathedral to use arts, literature, and music to build bridges between members of society.
The center participates with a group of pioneers of arts and culture in its activities, for example, the Bibliotheca Alexandrina, the Cairo Celebration Choir, Awtar Quartet, the soft power production, the Light and Hope Association, the Storytelling initiative for children, my story initiative, Ali Sotak “Raise your voice”, the Digital museum of women, Cairo Collective Guitar, The Dream of Light Foundation.
