Frequently Asked Questions


What is D-CAF, what does it stand for?

The Downtown Contemporary Arts Festival (D-CAF) is Egypt’s only international multi-disciplinary contemporary arts festival that takes place over three weeks in March-April each year, at multiple sites in Downtown Cairo.

Why Downtown?

One of the main aims of D-CAF is the revival and reclamation of Downtown Cairo as the vibrant cultural centre, capitalising on its unique architectural and social heritage. The festival also benefits from the fact that many of Cairo’s major independent cultural institutions are based in Downtown. D-CAF uses this to build on the existing cultural communities that these institutions have been creating over the last decade.
