Darb 1718

Arts Centre in Cairo

This super-cool creative space aims to be a ‘trampoline’ for contemporary art, which gives an idea of the fun to be found here – there's a regular program of concerts by Egyptian bands and movie screenings at night as well as a schedule of creative workshops. During the day there’s sometimes an art show on. For listings check out the website.

To reach Darb, walk south on Sharia Mar Girgis and follow the road as it bears left. At the end of the street, turn left on Sharia Qasr Al Shama and then turn right two streets on – Darb 1718 is at the end.
