The recently-founded Internet arts platform, Meetphool, will take arts to downtown Cairo on Saturday 26 May, when it promises to put on a number of artistic shows and street performances.
Meetphool's events include clown shows, mini-concerts by Ramez Ashraf from Alexandria and Mashrou Mareekh, as well as many contemporary art performances and some interactive theatre performances.
"We aim to improve the artistic quality of performance arts by providing an accessible, free-of-cost medium for showcasing, sharing knowledge and skill, networking and developing further work together," the organisation states in their announcement of the event.
Meetphool is a professional platform for the performing arts sector at large. Its function includes representing artists through portfolio pages, providing a meeting venue for performing artists, and distributing information on what is available in terms of artwork, resources, venues, festivals, training, conferences and funding.
Meetphool's programme will take place at 11 Mahmoud Bassiouni Street, downtown Cairo from 6pm to 10pm.
