History of Downtown
For a city with such a long history, many are surprised to learn that Downtown Cairo is less than 200 years old. Until the mid 1800's, the undisputed heart of Egypt's capital city was predominantly swamp land.Read More

Work WE DO
Work We Do
With its busy streets, the diversity of its residents and its continuous energy, Downtown Cairo has always been the meeting point for Cairo’s intellectual community and an inspiration for its artists, with the contemporary art movement contributing to the development of Egyptian society over the years. The area has both influenced, and been influenced by the Egyptian identity. We believe that art and culture are a key and essential component of Downtown Cairo as, well as a meeting point for all Egyptians. Since 2010, Al Ismaelia has been actively supporting initiatives in arts and culture of which the following are example: World Agricultural Museum, Tomorrow, Cairo Documenta, Percussion Show and Streets of Cairo.
