2nd Arab Popular Culture Forum - ET
CAIRO - 22 January 2020: The Supreme Council of Culture, in cooperation with the Ministry of Higher Education, organizes the Arab Popular Culture Forum under the slogan: “Insights and Transitions - The second edition; Women and the Arab Folklore”.
The second Arab Popular Culture Forum launches on March 3 and runs until March 5.
The first day of the forum will be held in the Supreme Council of Culture in Cairo. The second and third days will be held at the headquarters of the Civilization Center for Human Sciences and Popular Heritage at Mansoura University.
Researchers and specialists from most Arab countries will participate in the forum. The forum will cover the costs of accommodation and subsistence for Arab participants, while the participant will bear the costs of travel from his country to Egypt and vice versa.
The dynamism of the popular culture is generally represented in three interrelated and complementary dimensions, which at the same time define the basic characteristics and essential characteristics of this culture.
The three dimensions are:
The ability of Arab popular culture to transcend the boundaries of time and space.
The breadth of freedom to create this culture, display or cite it in daily life.
Multiple fields of interpretation.
Contemporary Arab societies are going through a delicate phase of transformations, whereby folk traditions change, which forces researchers to address this change by monitoring, analysis and evaluation.
It is worth noting that the Supreme Council of Culture organized the closing of the Fifth Cairo International Arab Poetry Forum early January 2020.
The name of the Forum’s winner (Qassim Haddad) has been announced at Al-Hanager Theater in the Egyptian Opera House, in the presence of the Minister of Culture Inas Abdel Dayem, Secretary-General of the Supreme Council of Culture Hisham Azmy and Nevin Mohamed the President of the National Library and Documentation House.
