East-West: The Art of Dialogue
The East-West: The Art of Dialogue initiative is a dynamic exchange program designed to connect and build constructive relations between future leaders from the Arab world and the West. The initiative was launched in 2012 in London, Washington and New York. It has been set up by the Shafik Gabr Foundation, and inspired by the Orientalist traveler painters.
The application process for the 2017 Fellowship is now closed. The Egypt program will take place from September 21st - 30th, 2017; and the US program from October 21st - 28th, 2017
