OPEN SPACE: Inspire Courage
From Nina Constable

OPEN SPACE is a street art initiative that aims to inspire men and women as equal contributors to a healthy society, economy, and political system. As part of OPEN SPACE, Jonathan Darby joined forces with young adults in Amman, Jordan to discuss issues of importance to them on the topic of gender. Collaboratively they painted messages and ideas to INSPIRE COURAGE from one generation to the next on gender issues. The resulting piece is a constant reminder from the community, for the community that a healthy society values the contributions of both men and women equally.
aptART and USAID Takamol – Gender Program are developing eight murals throughout the Kingdom of Jordan to increase social dialogue on gender through street art. The project is funded by IREX and USAID.
