In the autumn of 2018, Shelter City Amsterdam received Omayma from Egypt. Omayma is a human rights defender from Egypt who focuses mainly on Freedom of Expression and promotion of arts and development. She works as an Executive Director for an organization which works on preserving the architectural culture in of a big Egyptian city and providing encouragement and support to local artists. The work of the organization included implementing a project to provide cultural spaces in several Arab countries and participation in capacity building and developing cultural work in the Arab region.
One of the goals of Shelter City is to broaden the networks of our guests. Do you think you could help Omayma with her work or do you want her to speak at an event or something similar? Contact us and we will get in touch!
Keep in mind, this guest is no longer staying with us in Amsterdam, but we would be happy to forward your message so you can get in touch with her.
