The Coptic sub-pavilion aims at raising awareness for the Coptic minority within Egypt. While the Coptic sub-pavilion cannot explain the entirety of Coptic culture, it is an attempt to find the theological implications as well as connections integrated within certain aspects of Coptic culture that are being showcased. This year, the Coptic sub-pavilion will be raising awareness through the means of iconography, textiles and manuscripts, and church tours – with others such as Coptic music having been included in previous years. Each aspect of Coptic culture sheds light on the practices and traditions that Copts have both maintained and reformed since the first century.
