The Embassy of Sweden has, in close cooperation with both Jordanian and international partners, taken the initiative to organise a “Festival of Alternative Arts”, from December 2010 to February 2011

The “Festival of Alternative Arts”, will include the exhibition “Gaza Graffiti”

Inspired by the “Gaza Graffiti” book by Mia Gröndahl, which will open on 26 January 2011, at the Jordan National Gallery of Fine Arts.

the purpose of this festival is to encourage alternative forms of expression and to help launch a debate amongst artists and citizens about the nature of art

The festival comes in partnership with Greater Amman Municipality (GAM), Jordan National Gallery of Fine Arts, Royal Film Commission, Children’s Museum, Al-Balad Theatre, Hamzet Wasel, UNRWA, Danish Programme Office, Books@café, Jacaranda Images, Aramram, Philadelphia Skaters,* Ikbis* and Zeenko Comics, and a number of independent artists.

    The secrets of business is always to have some understanding that nobody else knows. The gambling generally known as business looks with austere disfavor upon the business enterprise generally known as gambling.

    This is a great initiative to bring graffiti art in the forefront. It is unfortunate how the art is misused and has gained a bad reputation.
