Back for a second edition, Amman Design Week’s Student Exhibition is a connecting point for students from all educational institutions in Jordan. As the only cross-university and cross-disciplinary showcase in Jordan, the Student Exhibition offers all students enrolled in Jordanian high-schools and universities across the country a chance to kick-start their careers by joining a mentorship program and showcasing their work to our audiences.
The mentorship program offers students an extracurricular learning experience by matching them with industry practitioners who will act as mentors that assist them in realizing and producing their designs. Participating students are also given the chance to take part in a competition that offers a cash reward to one distinctive entry, and other participation prizes.
This year’s student exhibition and mentorship program is supported by takween, a pilot program launched this year as a collaboration between platform and the Goethe-Institute Amman. The program supports designers and creative entrepreneurs in Jordan through a series of learning opportunities and community-building initiatives, and will be providing seed grants of 500 JOD to each student participating in the program.
The Student Exhibition will showcase work resulting from the mentorship program, and highlight the research and work done by students across Jordan.
