With the support of Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah, Amman Design Week kicked off on September 1st. Running until September 9th, it brings together art, design, and culture under one platform via immersive and interactive exhibitions, workshops, talks, guided tours, and culinary experiences.

The debut edition of the nine-day event features works by a new generation of experimental designers from Jordan and across the region, live musical performances, and an exhibition showcasing the works of University of Petra students from the fields of furniture and product design, architecture, and graphic design. Additionally, a dedicated Crafts District has been set up in downtown Amman with the aim of honoring Jordan’s rich national and cultural heritage.

According to Amman Design Week founders, “Design plays an essential role in everyday life. It gives form to ideas, solves problems, and enhances the well-being of communities, empowering them to imagine and build a better future. It is design that shapes unique and functional cities and environments from which we gain inspiration, transcendence, and joy. Designers today use creative and technical skills to develop new ways of being in the world. By enriching daily experiences and creating meaningful connections with people, designers give communities a voice to lead and inspire change.”
