The Egyptian Cultural Union at AUK Holds its First Event

The Egyptian Cultural Union (ECU) at AUK held its first event aiming to introduce the newly established student club to the AUK and public community. The event included booths representing three of the Egyptian subcultures of Nubia, costal Alexandria and Cairo. Each booth informed the visitors about traditional customs, foods, and attractions related to each subculture. The Nubia booth a Henna (tattoo) lady, the Alexandria booth had local food from the costal cuisine and the Cairo booth had some ancient Egyptian artefacts.

Not far away from the cultural booths, a photo stand was setup for visitors to take photos with friends against a backdrop of the Giza Pyramids and Sultan Hasan's famous mosque in Cairo. Complementing the Egyptian experience, the Egyptian folk band (Sharaf) performed the Egyptian famous folk show "Al Tanoora" in a festive atmosphere. The day ended by an Egyptian comic play (El Eyal Kebret) performed by the students in open air in a home cinema setting.

The club's President, Mark Riad, expressed his delight for "seeing the ECU's members' effort and time pay off with such a warm and engaging event."

Dr. Mohsen Bagnied, professor of Marketing and Economics at AUK and the club's Faculty Advisor, said "The event was a great success. I really look forward to further ECU accomplishments during the coming years."

The Egyptian Cultural Union is a student club that aspires to raise awareness about the Egyptian culture among the community in a fun and engaging manner. Through a variety of educational and cultural events, the union aims to instil knowledge about the Egyptian civilization, heritage, cultural diversity, and intellectual contributions to the Arab world.
