This directory is the Yellow Pages of Jordan's creative community. Through these listings we are trying to connect the creative community here in Jordan with other communities in the rest of the world. This is the directory that people will search when they are looking for new talent or when they just want to see who's out there.
In defining cultural and creative industries in 1986, UNESCO originally identified 10 categories for capturing information about cultural activities. In 1998, the UK Government Department for Culture, Media and Sport published a creative industries mapping document, which attempted to further define the creative industries and measure their impact for the first time. At that time, they identified 13 sectors of creative industries.
The sub-sectors that we have identified reflect Jordan’s current creative scene. They are intended as broad categories only, as we cannot incorporate every aspect of the creative industries.
