    CULTNAT Participates in a UNESCO Celebration in Paris

    Date published: 19 June 2009
    A delegation from Center for Documentation of Cultural and Natural Heritage (CULTNAT), led by Eng. Mohamed Farouk, CULTNAT Assistant Director, participated in an event held by United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in Paris on 17 June, 2009. The event, lasting for one week, celebrated the history of UNESCO in Egypt.

    The celebration presented the joint achievements and projects between UNESCO and Egypt in the fields of education, culture and heritage.

    The exhibition annexed to the event showcased examples of bilateral cooperation across several historical phases including Al-Nouba monumental fund, the Culture Ministry achievement of restoring the monumental Al-Moaz Street, CULTNAT, Al-Nouba museum and Bibliotheca Alexandria.
    The exhibition was held as part of the UNESCO fiftieth anniversary of the campaign to rescue Al-Nouba. The success of this campaign eventually led to the announcement of the UNESCO World Heritage Convention of 1972. It kicked off with a speech by UNESCO Director-General Koïchiro Matsuura.
    The exhibition gave attendees the opportunity to move across time starting from 3000 BC till the modern age.

    The process was carried out through presenting events that had an impact on the Egyptian history as well as the several historical sites known during the Islamic and Coptic eras.
    Meanwhile, the Egyptian delegation demonstrated CULTURAMA at the celebration, highlighting the diverse Egyptian historical eras like those of Pharaonic, Roman, Coptic and Islamic.

    CULTURAMA is an innovative panoramic interactive display of cultural heritage content on nine screens using nine projectors and a computer. CULTNAT had acquired the patent for CULTURAMA from Egypt's Academy for Scientific Research.

    CULTURAMA was presented around the world in several venues including: the Arab World Institute in Paris and the World Information Summit on Information Society in Tunis and Frankfurt Book Fair.
