The workshop is limited to 15 participantes.

AtWork is an educational format, conceived by lettera27 and Simon Njami, which uses the creative process to stimulate critical thinking and debate among the participants. The key element of AtWork is a workshop conducted by an artist or a curator on the chosen topic. The three day workshop will be held from the 3rd till the 5th of December 2015. The production made by the participants in the workshop will be exhibited in one of the Something Else – Off Biennale Cairo venues for the whole period of the event, following an opening. According to AtWork structure, the artists production during the workshop will be seen in an online exhibition. A short film will be made documenting the process of the workshop and showing the final exhibition.

Background

As for its fine arts part, a combination of extraordinary world-class artists, supported by committed patrons and genuine collectors led to placing Egypt on the frontier of art production within the regional context.

Background

Why Something Else?


Although Egypt is making considerable efforts to develop access to culture in general, it still remains underendowed and isolated, a paradox when considered that it was for millennia one of the worldwide richest culture and art producing countries. More
