What is ECCNA

The ECCNA is the annual European Convention and Conference of Narcotics Anonymous

The ECCNA – European Conference and Convention of Narcotics Anonymous – is an annual event that combines the celebration of recovery with service-oriented workshops. Each year the EDM – European Delegates Meeting – delegates the responsibility for planning and hosting the ECCNA to one of the bidding NA Communities. The European Convention and Conference combines two separate events on the same date and venue – one is the European Delegates Meeting (EDM), the other a recovery oriented, Europe Convention (ECCNA).

Ewart Memorial Hall

Ewart Hall is the main auditorium of the American University in Cairo and was built in 1928 with a grant from an anonymous donor who requested that the hall be named after her grandfather, William Dana Ewart, who had visited Egypt for health reasons. Ewart Memorial Hall (commonly referred to as Ewart Hall) is a two-level hall, seating approximately 1,000 people (approx. 700 downstairs and 300 in the balcony.) It was designed by Ariston St. John Diamant.

The hall has many uses. It is the venue for concerts, lectures, talent shows, conferences, speeches, musical and dance performances as well as commencement ceremonies (the graduate commencement ceremony is held in Ewart Hall.) The AUC Student Union also screens movies there as part of its weekly movie series.

Ewart Hall has been used by the Cairene community as a cultural center to host public lectures, movies and cultural performances. The renowned Egyptian singer, Umm Kalthoum, gave one of her first performances here, in 1937. When the Cairo Opera House burned down, AUC offered the hall as a venue to the Cairo Opera Company, who performed here for almost 18 months. The famous 1980's pop group, "The Police" also held a concert here.
