The Uprising is a growing community platform and ongoing movement, representing artists’ stories based in Jordan. A multimedia project uniting artists from different venues and genres, sharing their work, views, struggles, and the budding art scene of Amman with the world. A creative revolution found in the Middle East.
Anyone who cares about culture and community, freedom of speech and freedom of personal rights. For artists, lacking support and not being able to promote their art. For the ones not knowing anything about the creative scene of Amman. And for all the people being interested in new collaborations.
To promote the art scene and artists of Amman and in order to unite creative heads of Amman and outside. To support personal voice and freedom of speech and to create visibility of talent and creativity. To make a contribution to contemporary visual culture.
“IF THE SCENE DIED, THEY WOULD DIE WITH IT – THEY WOULD RATHER DIE WITH IT.”
