In keeping with its goal to encourage innovation and to preserve Egyptian heritage, the BA Sinnari House in Cairo is sponsoring a large number of Egyptian youth that are talented in the various fields of traditional craftsmanship. The youth’s innovative creations and works will be showcased in the 7th Min Fat Ademoh Tah (He Who Abandons His Past is Lost) Festival, which is going to be held from 18 to 24 August 2017.
The festival will host Moroccoo as this year’s guest of honor, in cooperation with the Association of the Moroccan Community in Egypt.
The festival aims to present the efforts of various Egyptian cities in preserving their heritage and traditional crafts, which is a means of preserving the national Egyptian identity. The Min Fat Ademoh Tah Festival is considered one of the most important traditional crafts festival in the Middle East. It is also looked upon as a highly ranked and prestigious festival in this field, as it promotes depreciating crafts in Egypt and promotes innovation in the field of traditional crafts through hosting young artists that present new ideas in that field.
A number of workshops that focus on various handicrafts, live performance, lectures, seminars, and concerts will also be included in the festival’s program.
The festival will have a large number of participating craftsmen from different Egyptian governorates, such as New Valley, Fayoum, and Kafr el-Sheikh. The Chamber of Handcraft, Federation Of Egyptian Industries (FEI), will also be participating in this year’s program.
It is noteworthy that the Min Fat Ademoh Tah Festival was launched in 2011 and achieved great success in its 2nd round in 2012, as people of all ages participated in its events. In 2013, the festival became an international event after the participation of Turkey, India, China, Sudan, and Kuwait. The 7th round of the festival will include a wide range of new crafts and concerts.
