Nubian Women`s Day


Within the framework of the Cultural Program of CULTNAT, the center celebrated the “Nubian Women's Day” for the third year. The event was on Monday 22nd of September, 2014. The ceremony honors women from different regions in Egypt that are distant from the city, to highlight the importance of women in the Nubian community and the role they play at home. September has been chosen in particular because it is the month of Hathor in the ancient Egyptian calendar (which starts from the 17th of September till the 16th of October). Hathor is the ancient Egyptian goddess that played the role of mother, wife, protector, and the guardian eye of Ra.
Oil paintings gallery for the artist Dr. Mervat El Shazly, the artist Nehal Dahab, and the artist Yasmin took place during the ceremony to show the Nubian women’s life and the Nubian community. A Nubian handicraft products exhibition accompanied the ceremony and grasped the attention of different media channels.
