Constructing Culture


AUC is nearing the completion of the first phase of the new Tahrir Cultural Center (TCC). Located at AUC's Tahrir Square campus, the TCC's inauguration is set to take place next month, in tandem with the launch of AUC’s yearlong centennial celebration.

The TCC will be fully owned, operated and programmed by AUC. It will host a broad range of events, from live music, dance performances, theatrical plays and movie screenings to art exhibitions, book clubs and conferences. It is now listed as an attraction to visit in Cairo by the Condé Nast Traveller Middle East.

"I believe in a matter of a few days we will be able to see the final results," said Aly Mourad, TCC director.
