Since October 2014, our library has been hosting and running the Townhouse Salons program, a monthly series of informal conversations open to the public, and held in either Arabic or English. For each salon we invite an artist, writer or critic to curate a topic of their choice, including sharing and discussing relevant texts and/or audiovisual material.
The Townhouse salons have brought together a mixed audience with guest speakers from different ages and backgrounds. Previous guest speakers include Nael El Toukhy, Mohamed El Masry, Mona El Namoury, Jehan Bseiso, Haytham El Wardany, Ania Szremski, Ismail Fayed, Iman Mersal, Heba Khalifa and Youssef Rakha.
We are happy to present you with a work-in-progress archive of our past Townhouse Salons, including the relevant reading material. Audio recordings of recent and upcoming talks will be also made available on our soundcloud channel.
