  • In Photos: Music & Poetry; Colours of Power at TWP

    With over 20 sessions and counting, The Word Project (TWP) has stood out among the few 'open mic' events taking place in Egypt; where people got to express how they feel through poetry, music or standup comedy. Last weekend's session at AlMaqar Coworking Space, and every session in our memories since February 2014, carried new, unexplored depths that were unleashed by the talented, emotional, charismatic and thoughtful performers. TWP sessions have always been a hub for people to speak out, and talk about how they felt at a certain point in their lives with no judgments, and as the founder Haidy Zakaria points it out: "after a few slams, people started coming up to me; telling me how I helped them with their issues, be it mental health or otherwise."
