Artmongering with Refugees

After overcoming some adverse factors that were preventing our return to the camp, we finally set foot in Jordan again on the 10th of February 2017. The camp had changed a lot and the children and adolescents we worked with last time have grown and changed too. Their kindness and warmth is still extremely disarming. We set to work in a few different directions: Catherine led the women’s POP UP Party (PUP) to precipitate connection and conversation with those who rarely leave their shelter,
and Patricio started two participatory projects, one with children and inspired by our partner’s logo, Care Jordan, and the other, transforming rubbish into an art installation on very tall fence, as well as ‘re-vamping’ Hope Square and completing the new Zig-Zag Square.

This time we brought with us our own filmmaker Matt Allen who did a great job in capturing the action. Check the 14-minute film below
