Who we are: Egyptians Abroad for Development (EAD) is committed to playing a contributing role in the shaping of Egypt's future through funding and co-managing socioeconmoic development efforts to Egyptian communities. EAD has no religious, political, or special interest affiliations or biases. EAD is an official 501(c)(3) Non-Profit organization which means that donations made to the organization may be tax deductible. Egyptians Abroad for Development (EAD) was founded in 2011 by a group of Egyptian youth committed to playing a contributing role in the development of their motherland. Those people crossed paths during the rallies supporting the January 25th revolution to voice their support and to stand in solitude with their fellow Egyptian citizens. On February 11th, the celebrations took place on Chicago’s streets nonetheless this crowd realized Egypt has a long way to go on the road of development. This shared vision of Egypt is what brought them together; most of who lived in the same city for years yet did not know of each other…but as always Egypt does bring us together and this is where the journey began. Since, EAD has been proud to attract a growing body of members to join the group and offer their full commitment, and enthusiasm to the building of a better Egypt.

Premier Cairo-based
Egyptian Artist Marwa Adel
Exhibits Memory of Physical Essence
at the Burning Bush Gallery, Wheaton Illinois

"As part of the CARAVAN exhibit, premier Egyptian Artist Marwa Adel presents her latest reflections on how our physical bodies are intricately linked to our life experiences titled Memory of Physical Essence. The exhibit is at the Burning Bush Gallery in Wheaton, IL. The show runs from Wednesday February 10th through Sunday, March 20th.

The physical body is a word surrounded by restrictions in Middle Eastern society. Our bodies are the medium that links us to this world and reflections our souls. The exhibition includes 25 works of photography, with digital photo manipulation.

Born in Cairo, Egypt, Marwa Adel holds a BA and MFA from the Advertising Department in the Faculty of Applied Arts from Helwan University, Cairo. Adel lives in Cairo and teaches at the Faculty of Applied Arts at Helewan University. She is a photographer and installation artist who combines text with photography in many of her projects. Adel defies traditional Middle Eastern norms by using pictures of the human body in her work. Her style is very personal and intimate as she maintains her own voice in all her work as she tackles the taboo of the human figure, using it as a form of expression and in revolt of social restrictions.

Reflecting on her art, Adel says, "One needs to express themselves in a way to make society hear, feel and understand you...When you find your life you will find your identity."

She has participated in many international exhibitions both in Egypt and internationally such as in Dubia, Sweden, Senegal, Mali, England, Sharjah, and the Netherlands. Adel has won many awards for her bold and powerful creations including the Golden Prize at the 9th European Arab Festival Of Photography competition in Abu Dhabi, UAE. Marwa Adel is represented commercially in the US by Syra Arts.

The show will open on Wednesday, February 10th. Regular viewing hours are scheduled on Sundays from 10am to 12:30pm, Monday through Friday 9am to 4pm. and Wednesday's from 6pm to 7pm. Special viewing arrangements for individual or groups can be made by calling 708-705-8669. There will be an Artists Reception on Saturday February 20th from 6-9pm with special guest, Ambassador Mohamed Aboueldahab, Consul General of Egypt in Chicago. For more information about the show and/or the Burning Bush Gallery, contact Tony Asta (tonyastaameritech.net/ 708-705-8669). Information on the Caravan Project can be viewed on their website; www.oncaravan.org or contact the Founder/President Rev. Cannon Paul-Gordon Chandler [email protected] or 630-347-8030. The Gallery is located on 216 N. Main St., Wheaton IL 60687. The Burning Bush Art Gallery is a ministry of Gary United Methodist Church."
