During 10 days workshop , Ktha Cie, a french organization based in Paris, has organized a workshop to explore the free small urban areas " "Petites Urbanités Libres" of the city of Portsaid in Egypt to give it an attention through creating artwork or performance in these areas.

 The workshop is funded by the French Institute in Egypt, the French Institute in Paris, Mitchell Jr. Shipping Co., Alliance française de Port-Saïd, and Egypt Public library.


About the project:

A prototype of public artwork is created from paper-mache, a half human body, stuck inside unused holes in different areas . As a reflection of the feeling of being stuck  and overwhelmed with stress, tons of information, and massive input we are being exposed to nowadays.
