Creative expression in the MENA region has flourished in recent years. With traditional lines of communication and authority being crossed and even rendered obsolete, writers, artists, journalists, and other generators of culture and expression are defying both geographic and social boundaries. What is it like to be a member of this creative class today in Egypt’s hotly contested political and social climate? How are today’s social changemakers navigating volatile systems of coercion and force? NPR’s Leila Fadel speaks to several of Egypt’s leading young visionaries about their experience.
