جدَل هو مبادرة تقدّم مساحة تتفاعل فيها الأنشطة الثقافيّة والمعرفيّة، لصياغة ونشر قيم مجتمعيّة جديدة. يهدف المشروع إلى تشجيع الإبداع والابتكار والعمل الجماعي العام. كما أنّه يوفّر مساحة لاكتشاف الذات والتساؤل، وتشارك المهارات، والتجارب، والنقاشات النقديّة، والفكر والفن.

يقع جدَل على أحد أقدم أدراج عمّان، الكلحة، في بيت يعود بناؤه إلى العام 1933. يصل جدَل بين قلب عمّان، وسط البلد، وجبل اللويبدة الذي يعج بالعديد من المشاريع الثقافيّة الطموحة والمبادرات الفنيّة. قام مؤسّس المشروع بترميم البيت، خلال عاميّ 2011-2012 ليجهّز فيه ساحة رحبة، وقاعة للقراءة، ومعرضاً فنيّاً، وقاعات للدورات وورش العمل.

Jadal is an initiative that offers an open space, where cultural activities and knowledge sharing fuse to evoke and spread new societal values. The project aims at encouraging creativity, innovation and collective activities that benefit the community. It also creates a space for self-exploration, questioning, sharing skills and experiences, critical discussions, reflection and artistic expression.

The space is situated in one of the old houses in Amman, loved for its unique architecture, dating back to 1933, located on al Kalha stairs, connecting Downtown, the busy old heart of the city and Jabal L’Weibdeh, a neighborhood bursting with ambitious start-ups and creative initiatives. The house was renovated by the initiator of the project, between 2011 and 2012 to have a lovely yard, a reading area, a gallery and classrooms.

  • Great place for a drink of juice homemade (of all types) by exchanging with people and more pillars of the association around topics such as philosophy, culture, travel, etc. Relaxing place where hookahs are not allowed

  • After living in Amman for 3 years, I discovered this place last week. I love their weekly Jadal Salon (where people attend and discuss a particular topic).  more »
  • Nice location, cool and relaxing place. I had enjoyed visiting this place. It is in the middle of the busy down town city and rather tranquil.  more »

Where to stay in Amman

Amman accommodations sit at all points on the spectrum, and you'd expect nothing less from a capital as diverse and eclectic as this. The more budget-friendly options, in the form of simple hotels, guesthouses, and hostels, lie predominantly in the downtown area, with the narrow, maze-like streets housing countless accommodations around each corner and over each hill. If you're looking for something a little more luxurious and with calmer surroundings, then the business districts to the northeast represent the best places to look, with high-rise chain hotels jostling for position along the main shopping streets and next to scenic parks and plazas.
