The lecture will be delivered by Dr. Nadia Khedr, Museum Superintendent of Alexandria and Rashid. The lecture will revolve around the role of museums as one of the most influential institutions in the dissemination of culture and archaeological awareness, thus majorly transforming the role of museums from merely being a storage space for antiquities into becoming an archaeological and cultural center spreading archaeological awareness among individuals from all walks of life.
