In Pictures: Amman’s The Word Is Yours Urban Festival

This past October weekend saw Amman’s 7Hills Skatepark being taken over with artists, skateboarders, beatboxers, and rappers in the Jordan’s first urban festival. The Word Is Yours, produced by Malahi and Mektoub, brought together an eclectic mix of entertainers in a lively two-day event in Jabal Lweibdeh, with young Ammanis flocking to the scene. The crowd-funded initiative is the first of its kind in the region, and helped shine a spotlight on the growing hip-hop urban scene in Amman.

Hussam Da’na was there to document the action for ElCATALOG – an upcoming online visual project.
