In line with its mission to support the global creative community, The One Club for Creativity has established The One Club for Creativity-Cairo as its first international chapter.
Enas Rashwan, who serves as President of Cairo Ad School and a creative director for more than a decade, has been named the President of the new chapter. The new authorized chapter will offer creatives in Egypt an array of initiatives across creative disciplines, falling under four key pillars –– education, inclusion & diversity, professional development and gender equality.
“Putting Egypt on the global creative map has long been my aim, and the existence of The One Club in Egypt is a dream came true for me. Our country has always been the hub of creativity in the Middle East, and we have many great creatives who are known across the region. With The One Club-Cairo, we’ll now be able to connect our creatives to the global community,” said Ms Rashwan.
“No other organization gives back to the advertising and design industries with the level of comprehensive educational and development programming on a global basis as The One Club for Creativity. Cairo has long been a creative leader in the region, and we are thrilled to work with Enas and her team as they have become our first International chapter,” added Kevin Swanepoel, CEO, The One Club for Creativity.
Headquartered in New York, The One Club for Creativity is a non-profit organization devoted to elevating and celebrating creative excellence in advertising and design on a global basis.
“The One Club for Creativity-Cairo is a great opportunity for local creatives, students, faculties and clients to shine, grow and become part of the global community, all of which will makes us stronger and better. I am so proud to be part of this highly regarded organization and ready to serve the chapter with heart and soul,” Ms Rashwan added.
