Inauguration of Comics Week in Jordan 2024

Updated: Jun 3

We are thrilled to announce the 4th edition of Comics Week in Jordan, set to take place from May 21 to 27, 2024, at the Sweifieh Village Rooftop. This year’s event, themed "Comics for Humanity," promises a week full of engaging exhibitions, insightful discussions, and creative showcases.

Comics for Humanity Exhibition

As part of the "Comics for Humanity" exhibition, the French Institute of Jordan is proud to present a diverse range of perspectives on migration through the works of several talented artists: Khalid Nahar, Emad Hajjaj, and Diala Brisly.

Spotlight on Diala Brisly

Diala Brisly, whose life journey has taken her from Kuwait to France via Syria, will present two compelling works that depict the daily challenges faced by young refugees. Diala believes that art serves as a balm for wounded souls and a powerful weapon against despair. Her poignant illustrations highlight the resilience and strength of young people in the face of adversity.

Collaborative Work on Migration Stories

In addition, researcher Amal Khaleefa has initiated a project with Jordanian artists Khalid Nahar and Emad Hajjaj to transcribe into comics the story of Abou Iyad, a remarkable individual she met during her fieldwork in the Zarqa camp. This collaboration brings to life the personal stories and experiences of those affected by migration, providing a unique and intimate look into their lives.

Event Details

Comics Week is organized by EUNIC Jordan in cooperation with the Embassy of Spain in Amman, the Embassy of Belgium in Jordan, the Embassy of France in Jordan, the French Institute of Jordan, Greece in Jordan, and Dante Amman (Italy). The event is also generously funded by the European Union and held under the esteemed patronage of HRH Princess Wijdan Al Hashemi.
