Theme: Diversion

This event occurred on
April 28, 2018
6th of October city, Al Jīzah

The theme is aimed to spread the thought and concept of the pivotal moments and decisions that cause us, as a community or individuals, to decide to turnover or transform a reality we live in. Realities vary and concern various aspects of life. Transformations can begin with small scale shifts like an individual's career as an example, and all the way to a much broader scale like remodeling life goals as individuals or focusing and inducing change to various areas within our community aiming to stimulate further improvement and growth. Not only that we are seeking change, but also, we are affirming the idea of creating and building things in any form that could result in further betterment of our society. This was a brief explanation about the theme of the event. It aggregates many ideas that need to be spread and discussed, especially among our Egyptian community for all the potentials that the Egyptian minds possess but rarely expressed or acted on.
