Their achievements illustrate the history of Egypt, the cradle of civilization, but also the art and culture of the country. This exhibition is a real bridge that spans the shores of memory and the future. The Egyptian civilization does not belong only to the Egyptians, it is a heritage for humanity in all its diversity.

As Montreal prepares to celebrate its 375th anniversary and Canada’s 150th anniversary, this event is a great citizen’s initiative that invites the public to revisit and pay tribute to the legacy of the pluralistic Egypt.

An activity for children – families is scheduled on July 8th from 2 pm to 4 pm.

* The Egyptian Bureau of Cultural Affairs and Education provides services throughout Canada and organizes cultural and scientific activities with other institutes related to Egypt.
