The Initiative to Support Culture in Egypt
Madad (The Cultural Support Initiative) is an independent Egyptian grant-making institution, financed by individuals, companies, banks and other organisations and agencies, whose purpose is to fund local cultural projects in Egypt.
How does Madad define local cultural projects?
Projects that seek to offer a cultural service to culturally deprived communities. Such services could be theatrical performances, training in the arts, literary seminars, concerts, fairs and folk festivals, artistic and cultural programmes in schools, talent discovery activities, film screenings and art exhibits. The intended beneficiaries are people in small towns and villages and in slums and other poor urban neighborhoods.
