Pharaohs' Statues

and Contemporary Craftsmen

31 May 2016

In the evening of 30 May 2016, ARCHiNOS presented its work in the “City of the Dead”, which is primarily funded by the EU Delegation to Egypt, at the event “EU & Egypt: Partners in Development” held in the garden of the Egyptian Museum. This was also an opportunity for the traditional craftsmen of the Sultan Qaitbey neighbourhood, where ARCHiNOS works, to display their products in the Museum grounds, literally in the shadow of Ancient Egyptian statues.


Agnieszka Dobrowolska, ARCHiNOS director, explains the project in the “City of the Dead” to the Minister of Antiquities Dr Khaled al-Anany and the Minister of Foreign Cooperation Dr Sahar Nasr during the European Union’s event on Monday, 30 May
