CAIRO – 30 December 2020: The Cultural Development and Community Communication Department in the office of the Minister of Tourism and Antiquities organized the third forum for the artists of the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities under the title "Medicine, Healing and Medicines through the Ages" at the Royal Chariots Museum.
The idea of the forum this year was developed in line with the current conditions that the world is going through, so that participating artists are encouraged to present artworks on the history of diseases and medicine in Egypt through the ages.
31 artists participated in this exhibition with 45 artworks, varying between plastic, photographic, sculpture, and fashion designs, in addition to a qualitative aspect that includes folk medicine and embalming.
The exhibition runs until January 7, 2021, during the official working hours of the museum. It will also be taken into account to display all the participating works on social networking sites to reach the largest segment of society, in addition to applying all precautionary controls and preventive measures.
The guest of honor for this year's forum is Deputy Supervisor of the Archaeological Consciousness School for the Visually Impaired in the Egyptian Museum Ahmed Naguib El-Sayed, who participates in a collective work on the Corona pandemic, in order to address the public, including the sighted and the visually impaired.
The forum aims to shed light on the creative people of the ministry and encourage them to present artistic works inspired by the great Egyptian heritage and civilization.
