CAIRO — They may best be known as beasts of burden, but the donkey will soon be the star of the week-long Caravan Festival of the Arts opening here Friday. The festival is designed to spotlight efforts to achieve freedom and religious tolerance and demonstrate the fruits of the 2011 revolution.
Over 90 fiberglass donkeys on display will bear a message of peace and tolerance created by 45 artists from around the world. The festival will link Eastern and Western culture through the visual arts as well as literature, film and music, organizers said.
