Decorated Donkeys grazing around Cairo!

The British Council, along with the Embassy of Switzerland, supports the fifth CARAVAN FESTIVAL OF THE ARTS taking place at St. John’s Church in Maadi from May 9 to May 16, 2013.
As part of the visual arts programme of the festival, 80 fiberglass donkeys will be decorated by Egyptian and foreign artists and exhibited in public places around Cairo.
The British Council in Agouza will be hosting two donkeys - one by British artist Julie Oxenforth [] and one by Egyptian artist Dr Salah El Meligy [], Head of the Fine Arts Sector of the Ministry of Culture.
After being displayed in Cairo, 25 of the donkeys will travel to Geneva for an exhibition at the United Nations headquarters and then on to London for a final exhibition.
