The pop-up Crafts District, a space dedicated to celebrating the social, performative, and critical discourse of crafts and making took place in an open-air structure designed by architect Dina Haddadin at the Al Hussein Cultural Center.
It featured a series of demonstration booths, pop-up shops, design installations, cultural activities, and a curated food program with a focus on the art of preservation in local culture.
Advocating for the return of the handmade, ‘The Craft of Making’ series, curated by Shermine Sawalha, brought audiences closer to the heart of crafts as a learning experience, and homage to local heritage.
