Keep Makan’s Doors Open Makan Launches A Crowd Funding Campaign on

May 10, 2015 - 00:00 to June 6, 2015 - 00:00

As the political situation in the Arab world continues to be reshaped, open independent spaces like Makan Art Space that are dedicated to contemporary art and social practice are facing a crisis. 
Core funding for art spaces in the Arab world is scarce and with the cost of living in Amman continuing to rise, it has become a challenge to keep Makan open as an independent space for all. 
So we have launched a crowd funding campaign to raise some of this core funding.  
We have successfully raised a third of our annual core budget for 2015 from local philanthropists and we look to you, our extended family and community, to help us raise another third. 
Our campaign is supported by a number of artists and social innovators from our network that have contributed towards some exciting and fun rewards. And now it’s your turn. We look to you to make this campaign a success by doing one of three things:

  1. Contribute to the campaign by going  to and making a donation 
  2. Forward this email to your network and encourage them to support Makan
  3. Share the campaign on your Facebook page and other social networks

We thank you for your continued interest and support. Together we can keep these doors open.
