Shadi will take guests through an experience of Circassian food, dance, and music. Shadi will also educate participants about the informal Palestinian camp in Jabal Al Natheef.
Participants will meet in front of Al Husseini Mosque and visit Al Bukharia market. They will learn about the old markets created by immigrants in Amman dating back to the early 1930's. They will then move to Jabal Al Natheef, where they will learn about the life and community of Circassian immigrants and Palestinian refugees. They will visit a local NGO which works with both groups to learn about their initiatives and programs such as academic support and art with kids from the community, as well as art for people with disabilities. Host Shadi will discuss with the participants community organizing, as well. Participants will share a Circassian meal together and conclude with a lesson about Circassian music and dance.
