Mosireen is a non-profit media centre in Downtown Cairo born out of the explosion of citizen journalism and cultural activism in Egypt during the revolution. Armed with mobile phones and cameras, thousands upon thousands of citizens kept the balance of truth in their country by recording events as they happened in front of them, wrong-footing censorship and empowering the voice of a street-level perspective. Mosireen, which is a play on the Arabic words for ‘Egypt’ and ‘determination’ was founded in the wake of Mubarak’s ousting by a group of film makers, citizen journalists and activists who got together to found a collective space dedicated to supporting citizen media of all kinds. They provide training, technical support, equipment, and a library, organize screenings, open discussions and events. They also produce their our own work, all of which will be on discussion at the event.
