As a consequence, the South-Med public spaces have often been over taken by the official power. The recent socio-political transformations have shown, on one hand, that it's possible to reclaim the citizen's public space, and revealed on the other, emerging challenges.

Public Space and Contemporary Street Arts
Street Theater in Egypt

General Objective: We aim at enhancing the status of street arts, in terms of their economic and social returns.
Target group: Legislative and executive authorities and local groups Artists and art production bodies.
We notice: The weakness of both the production and legal structure resulting in a decline in the contemporary art practices in the public space.
The problem: Why street arts are not considered as part of the cultural code of ethics and folklore?
The solution: To cooperate with all the stakeholders to set a transparent procedural structure and to establish a fund for supporting production and raising awareness of the culture institutions, encouraging them to produce contemporary street art works.
