About Us

What is AEA ?

Since 2013, we have celebrated Egypt’s great past and educated history lovers of all ages through a variety of vibrant and interactive courses, learning events, workshops, creative resources.-- and phenomenal tours to Egypt and North American museums. What begun as a love of Ancient Egypt sparked through the Near and Middle Eastern Studies Graduate School at University of Toronto… has blossomed into a passion to spread our inspiration and higher knowledge about this fascinating civilization - far and wide

Since inception, we have provided educational programming for:

Toronto Public Library System, The Oakville Museum, Niagara Falls Museum, Kitchener’s THE MUSEUM (Egyptian Dialogues and Ancient Egypt Week for Kids 2017), the SSEA, ARCE and The Cobourg Historical Society – to name a few. We also teach at Ryerson’s Life Institute for Seniors and are now proud to be an official partner of the Toronto District School Board!
