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.

  • a site visited by locals but not by tourists and adventurers, so it is a little-known place

  • Actually located in one of the busiest areas of Jordan, this is a haven of peace and quiet. A great place to have a quiet turkish coffee after wandering around the hectic downtown area  more »
  • Looking for a quiet place in Amman where you can sit over a cup of coffee after walks and visits museums. Guide advised us to come here. Locals come here to just hang out and spend time. Of course the cultural center is a little it seems there is a small art gallery and a small cafe, but sit and drink in the atmosphere was very good, pleased that there are even free Wai fai.
