We are pleased to invite you in the next meet-up of “Hiwar Art Club” to join an open discussion session hosting professor Moawiyah Ibrahim, representative of the Commission on Human Rights and World Heritage, who will give an open panel discussion on preserving the cultural heritage of the City. This meeting is co-organized with “Ma7alli Campaign”.
About the Campaign:
“We, the residents and visitors of Jabal Al-Weibdeh, organized ourselves to act and move the Jordanians to protect old Amman. We recently learned about signs of entry of major international companies to Jabal Al-Weibdeh neighborhood and the city center, Among these companies that are so far confirmed are the American “Starbucks” cafe, the French “Carrefour” store and a McDonald’s franchise. We have lost enough of the nature and identity of ancient Amman, and if we are silent about the construction of global brands and companies in old Amman neighborhoods like Jabal Al-Weibdeh, this will contribute to destroying our local products and the visual and social identity of the place and its residents.”
Join us at 6:30 PM, Sunday 23/2/2020 At the Jordan National Gallery of Fine Arts – Building #2.
