Project Yourself: Giving A Chance To Normal People

A one of its kind event has taken Cairo by storm for the past couple of months, it’s been gaining a lot of popularity and has been featured in several Egyptian publications and magazines, this event is an Open Mic night by the name of Project Yourself. The idea is about giving normal people a chance to express themselves with music, stand up comedy, poetry, dancing, short stories or silence…anything goes! And the greatest thing about it, it is not a talent show or a contest of any kind.

This project started in December 2009 and had a very successful run with 8 nights up until now. The event was held in different locations, but people’s favorite was “Makan”, a very cozy place in Down Town Cairo.

This is a great initiative to encourage people and make them express themselves in different ways, it also gives local talents some exposure and encourages Egyptian creativity.

You can read about how the project started from the creators themselves on an interview with Egypt Today here.

If you’d like to check how it looks like, check out Project Yourself’s Youtube Channel.

You can also follow it on Facebook and Twitter for more info and events updates.

We will definitely have more about Project Yourself here on Mashareeb, so stay tuned.
