Events in Amman, Dec. 2 – 5

الأربعاء 02 كانون الأول 2009

We hope everyone had a happy Eid, whether you stayed in Amman or seized the chance to take a break from the city. We hate to admit it, but it’s been a relatively quiet week on the art and culture front, which is why your Sunday roundup was delayed. We’re back today, with a short roundup that includes some interesting concerts, film screenings, and art exhibitions.

We’ll be back on regular schedule this coming Sunday, with a lot more events on the calendar.
