I lived five years in China working with visual artists in Ceramic and Traditional painting mediums. I would like to make a Center in the Egyptian Pottery village of Tunis, near Fayoum that acts as a cultural exchange center to bridge these two ancient cultures. The center will be an interactive space that promotes understanding and awareness of different cultures as well as a residency for artists. We will purchase a piece of land and construct a living and studio space. The center will offer classes to the local community in traditional Chinese arts and the Chinese artists will learn traditional Egyptian craft in exchange.
