Seconnd Arab Origami Festival unfolds in Alexandria
Cairo - Arab Today

In its second edition, the Arab Origami Festival is a two-day festival featuring workshops, lectures, performances, exhibitions, film screenings and installations at the Saint Gabriel School in Alexandria on 24-25 October.
The festival celebrates the ancient Japanese art of paper folding, which has grown in popularity in the Middle East thanks to many initiatives, among them the Arab Origami Centre, which is organising this month's event.

This is the festival's second edition, with the first one held in 2011, and is organised by the Arab Origami Centre with the support of the Danish Centre for Culture and Development, the Cultural Innovators Network, The Japan Foundation, UNHCR, Rufy's and the Atelier of Alexandria.
