SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) - Actor Sameh al-Sereiti, Representative of the Actors Syndicate:
"I respect and confirm my support for Al-Azhar document as Al-Azhar is the religious reference for Egyptians, not only Muslims, because I believe that Al-Azhar is the protection shield for Egyptians against any attack launched at our national unity and that Al-Azhar is the house of Muslims and Copts."

For his part, Singer Iman al-Bahr Darwish, Chairman of Musicians Syndicate, said that the state, as well as the media, should honor and award the artists who provide good and instructive work to elevate the standards and values of art.

SOUNDBITE 1 (Arabic) - Singer Iman al-Bahr Darwish, Chairman of Musicians Syndicate:
"I think that the state should contribute to enrich good works of art so that artists would compete to produce the best artistic works to be awarded and commended by the media. If the state does not honor such creative artists, each good artist will continue on his own, based on his own strength and resolution in the fact of media negligence of his elevated art."

Al-Sereiti noted that the role of art in the future must be effective and representative of all Egyptians.

The attendees also talked about the future of art especially after the rising of Islamists in the political life of Egypt.
