قبل عدة أيام تلقيت رفض لطلبي على الفيزا من السفارة الفرنسية في القاهرة، وكنت متجه لجنوب فرنسا وتحديدا لجامعة “إكس مارسيليا” في منحة لمدة عام من قبل “برنامج حماية الفنانين” المدعوم من صندوق “ميلون” الأمريكي.
هذا الرفض مؤسف ويحرمني من فرصة مهمة للدراسة وبعض المشاريع التي كان مخطط لإن اقوم بها هناك.
A few days ago, I received a rejection on my application for a visa from the French Embassy in Cairo and I was heading to the south of France, specifically to the Aix-Marseille University, for a one-year grant from the American-funded Mellon in the “Artistic Protection Program”.
This rejection is disappointed and deprives me of an important opportunity to study and for achieving some of the projects that I planned to do there.
A day of free expression, Peace and Art.
