On Saturday 21 February 2009, from 5 to 8 pm, Amman’s youth are invited to attend an open Amman Centennial Forum with the Mayor of Amman Omar Maani, to discuss Amman’s vision, at Al Al Hussein Cultural Center in Ras Al Ein. Check out the event’s Facebook page.
This forum is being held by the Amman Institute for Urban Development, at the initiative of Interruptions, an experimental architectural/cultural publication that was started by a group of enthusiastic students last year.
I think that such a youth/student focused forum is a great idea. It will be a good chance to start a dialog with the Mayor and other decision makers at the municipality, to make sure that a young perspective on urban affairs is heard. Anyone who is interested in the future of Amman should attend.
SYNTAX was involved with the Interruptions team over the past few months and we ended up redesigning the magazine. The new issue designed by SYNTAX designer Ahmad Sabbagh will be distributed in the Forum. The finalizing of the magazine meant a series of sleepless nights for the Interruptions team and Ahmad, the likes of which SYNTAX has not seen in a long time. But we think it will be worth it
Hope to see you at the Forum.
