What is the YC team?

All artists empowered through the Mentoring, One Egyptian Artist and Income Generation Programs join the highly selected group of Young Artists and Creatives (YAC) . Since its inception AlQomrah has been developing a vast network of artists.  Our hope is that they would become leaders or ambassadors in the cultural field to inspire their peers.

Despite the relatively small number of artists officially supported through our programs it is important to mention that AlQomrah co-founders constantly support a group of 100+ artists in Egypt informally. Our aim is to make this network increasingly coordinated and therefore more self-sustainable.

Most YEAP officially supported by AlQomrah have either worked on multiple assignments or have joined multiple programs. This is an important indicator of success as it shows that artists have found in AlQomrah a safe space to develop their skills and embrace the dream of becoming professional artists.The eagerness shown by YEAP to support, work and collaborate with AlQomrah pushes us to do more in the hope to change the sector for the better from bottom up.
