The protests of January 25th and the revolution that followed ripped through Egyptian society like an earthquake, unsettling  deeply entrenched attitudes and awakening hitherto silent parts of the community—mostly young Egyptians, who for many years had withdrawn from taking an active role in the society.
Inspired by these young people, AGORA Arts & Culture organized an exhibition entitled "Egypt after the Revolution that was held in March 2011 at the Alexandria Atelier for Artists and Writers. Featuring works by 20 young photographers who had participated in the protests, the exhibition explored the various stages of the Egyptian revolution, from its inception to the achievement of its objectives. Part of this exhibition is being presented at the Hellenic American Union under the title “The Rebirth of a Nation” in an attempt to share aspects of the Egyptian revolution with the Greek audience and to promote intercultural dialogue.

Participating photographers: Nagwa Abdelhamid, Asmaa Abdellatif, Abdallah Dawestashy, Heba Elbegawi, Amy Elshaarawy, Hagar Gamal Eldin, Corinne Grassi, Mohamed Hatem, Wessam Maher, Sherif Mohamed, Ahmed Refaat, Taymour Senbel, Bassem Talaat, Zee Mo
