• Director’s Welcome

    D-CAF is seven years old.

    A milestone has been reached, making D-CAF the rst and only independent, international, multidisciplinary contemporary arts festival in Egypt to ever have seven consecutive yearly editions.

    The magical and celestial number seven brings a feeling of accomplishment and positive renewal. It brings happiness and pride and a deep sense of gratitude:

    Gratitude to our audiences who have been incessantly faithful, to our supporters who never let us down, even in the hardest of times, to our collaborators and business partners who stood by us through thick and thin, and to our families and life partners who have supported our long absences, crazy working hours, and insane stress.

    To commemorate this milestone in our existence, we thought it would be tting to choose a theme, another rst for D-CAF.

    We could not nd a better cause to honour than the amazing achievements of women. International Women’s Day is celebrated annually on the 8th of March. In 2018, this date also marks the opening day of our festival but more importantly, it is the day we celebrate women’s essential presence in our human existence as a whole.

    It is important to remember that D-CAF could have never become what it is today without its inspired and inspiring team of young and dedicated professionals that is composed to 80% of women.

    We dedicate this seventh edition of D-CAF to the wives, lovers, sisters, BFFs, daughters, and mothers of our lives. They are without doubt our only hope for salvation.

    Enjoy the shows.
