Cairo Mediterranean Literary Festival


Cairo Mediterranean Literary FestivalThe 2nd Edition of the Cairo Mediterranean Literary Festival , project of Baad el Bahr Cultural Association will take place in Cairo (various venues) from the 22nd to the 25th of May 2011.
The Cairo Mediterranean Literary Festival is aims to be a space for sharing insights and a platform for independent thinking, promoting the value of cultural differences.

The term “literary”, used here in the widest sense of the word, encompasses texts written for different functions, from the novel, to song, to theatre, to cinema, to cabaret. Many figures from the literary world, but also from journalism, television and publishing, all well known in their own countries, but much less so in the rest of the Mediterranean basin, will come together on the stages of various theatres and cultural centres in the city, with shows and debates.
This year the Festival’s theme is Literature and Cities.
