CAIRO Pro Helvetia

Through the exhibition Let Textiles Talk at the Stedelijk museum in Amsterdam (2021) I found out Ramses Wissa Wassef Art Center established by Egyptian architect Wissa Wassef in 1952. He established it to teach young Egyptian villagers how to create art, including tapestries. He believed that children are endowed with creative power and potential. During the Studio Residency program of Pro Helvetia I be working at Ramses Wissa Wassef Art Center, learning weaving and create tapestries.
