Mosireen is a non-profit media centre in Downtown Cairo born out of the explosion of citizen journalism and cultural activism in Egypt during the revolution. Armed with mobile phones and cameras, thousands upon thousands of citizens kept the balance of truth in their country by recording events as they happened in front of them, wrong-footing censorship and empowering the voice of a street-level perspective.
Egypt’s march towards the future its millions demanded did not end with Mubarak leaving power, it began. Mosireen, which is a play on the Arabic words for ‘Egypt’ and ‘determination’ was founded in the wake of Mubarak’s ousting by a group of film makers, citizen journalists and activists who got together to found a collective space dedicated to supporting citizen media of all kinds. We provide training, technical support, equipment, and a library, organise screenings, open discussions and events. We also produce our own work, which you can see here.
The Mosireen workspace is open to everyone, regardless of their level of experience. We see a big part of our role as helping network between a wide variety of initiatives and projects, especially those born out of a spirit of civic engagement. Alongside other groups we are also helping build and provide access to the archive of footage from Egypt’s ongoing revolution.
Opening Hours: Sat-Thurs Noon -10 pm
