Amal Akhnoukh is a mosaic artist and social entrepreneur that is fascinated with Egypt's rich cultural heritage and how it has been expressed over the long course of its rich history through symbols, themes and motifs that ultimately shape our identity as Egyptians.
WHAT IS AMAL MOSAIC ART'S BIG MISSION?
At its core, Amal Mosaic Art is about reaching out to underprivileged communities in Cairo and inspiring people to learn all about mosaic art and be part of beautifying their community in the process.
Amal, strongly believes that public art projects connect individuals to their community in a way that builds in them a strong sense of ownership and ultimately nurtures a spirit of team work and collaboration through art expression.
The event will be a unique spin on the concept of an "art show", combining an exhibit of her powerful mosaic artwork with the launch of her "Mosaic My School" project with a local NGO "Peace & Plenty" and public school students from the Ezbet Khairallah community.
The attendees will also have the chance to sign up for the upcoming beginner and intermediate workshops that will be held at Soma Art School in Zamalek and Art Cafe in Maadi during the month of April.
