12th Edition Highlights

Director's Welcome Word
Director’s Welcome Word

Hakawy returns this year with its 12th edition, looking back at the start of this incredible journey 12 years ago with our belief and hope that every child no matter who they are or where they come from, they have a right to quality art and cultural experiences that nurture them to be fully fledged individuals. We are still keeping the same energy and enthusiasm 12 years on & we are excited to have 11 productions live on stage this year! Along with an even more exciting side program of workshops and talks, this year the program reflects on concepts of spatial exploration in childhood especially in a city like cairo with its ever changing urban fabric & landscape, whether it is for children to explore the flora and fauna in our ecosystem or get a sense of the places around them, old and new. 

It is my pleasure and the entire AFCA team behind the festival to have  worked on this exciting edition and to bring your child and family an eclectic, enjoyable and fun festival experience and hope you enjoy your time with us.
