The BA aims to revive the role of the Ancient Library of Alexandria in encouraging dialogue and exchange among scientists, philosophers, and artists alike. The BA Arts Center provides a forum dedicated to various expressions of all forms of art, and it seeks to realize the goals of the BA in being Egypt’s window on the world and the world’s window on Egypt in the artistic field.

The Arts Center promotes creative exchange and mutual understanding between cultures  through building partnerships with institutions from different backgrounds. The monthly events of the Arts Center support Egyptian and high profile international contemporary arts from around the world. In order to facilitate experience sharing between local and international artists, it also hosts international artists through its Artist in Residence program and presents Egyptian contemporary arts in venues abroad.

Other than promoting the artistic capacities of artists from Egypt and the Arab world, the Arts Center also seeks to be an incubator for the talents of children and young people, and it provides training and development opportunities for them in world-class international institutions.
