Overview

Darb 1718 Contemporary Art and Culture Centre is an Egyptian non-profit organization founded in 2008. Darb 1718 includes a variety of indoor and outdoor spaces that host different art mediums and cultural events in the heart of Old Cairo. Darb 1718 is a total of two art exhibition spaces, a dance and concert stage, gardens, rooftops and outdoor cinema for independent film screenings.
