No. 0957 Sawy Culture Wheel

El Sawy Culture Wheel is at the heart of Egyptian arts and music. It's melody rings not just of guitars but of the pulse of the people (the name of the center comes from a novel "El Sakia" the water wheel. Indeed, the place is like a reflection in water of the Egyptian soul). Concerts, yoga lessons, drumming sessions, dance classes, children's art classes, science fairs, are a few of the events held in the location. Previously an abandoned disused area that was literally a dump, the organization's founder cleaned up the area and transformed the urban landscape into a thriving cultural hotspot and hub. Love you culturewheel.
