AMMAN — Underground Amman Tour, a weekly walk held on Fridays, provides a broader perspective of the ancient city Amman, by exploring the often hidden art scene in the heart downtown. “We aim to link ancient neighbourhoods in Amman with street art,” Ala’ El Deen Arafeh, founder of the initiative, told The Jordan Times on Saturday. Tourists get a sense of the achievements of Amman’s artists through graffiti painted on ancient buildings, said Arafeh. “Around 70 per cent of Amman’s street artists are females,” Arafeh highlighted.
