Jadal for Knowledge and Culture
Jadal for Knowledge and Culture is a private non-profit initiative, providing an area in which cultural and cognitive activities are pursued in an attempt to formulate and disseminate progressive societal concepts, cultures, and values—following the tenets of science, solidarity, equality, and freedom. It islocated on Al-Kalha, one of the oldest staircases in Amman, in a house that dates back to 1933. It connects Downtown, the heart of Amman, and Jabal Al-Weibdeh, an area full of ambitious cultural projects and artistic initiatives. The founder of the project renovated the house during 2012 to provide a spacious atmosphere for events, spaces for reading and studying, courses, workshops and meetings, seating, and friendly gatherings.
