artellewa is a space for visual art founded by Egyptian artist Hamdy Reda in 2007 and managed by artists.  It is located in Ard El Lewa, a densely populated area located between the two great squatter settlements of greater Cairo.

artellewa is a space for the creation and activation of dialogue between artists and society.

It aims to connect Ard El Lewa and its inhabitants with the broader culture of the city and the world through art.  It creates a unique opportunity for Egyptian and foreign artists to interact and experience the local community and environment.  Artellewa facilitates artists’ projects, offers workshops for community members and emerging artists, exhibits art in its gallery space and has hosted artists-in-residence from over fifteen countries.
