Al Balad Theatre is preparing to re-publish its “Waw Al Balad” magazine in an electronic form. As of December 15, 2020, the magazine will be available on an electronic website and a mobile application, available on Apple and Android stores.


Launched in a print version in 2009, the cultural magazine was only published until 2013. From that point onwards, “Waw al Balad” page on social media platforms continued to cover local and international events in culture and arts. Thanks to its coverage of all events taking place since the full lockdown came into effect last April, the page has managed to reach a wide base of followers, who continue to rely on it for information. 


In addition, “Waw al Balad” produced “Waw al Balad” weekly news on Mazaj FM, and has acted as the media partner for a number of events such as: the local Baladak for visual arts and Amman Jaz festivals, and the international Marsam online and Arabisk Festival among others.


Relaunched in a new form, “Waw al Balad” will serve as an electronic platform that keeps track of local and international events in arts and culture on its agenda. It also produces original written and audio-visual content that focuses on art and culture in Arabic and English.


Its new editorial team consists of young people, who participated in “Hakaya Baladak” project, which aimed at capacity-building and training youth from five Jordanian governorates on creating compelling written and audio-visual media content.


Preparing for the launch, the magazine offered a number of small grants for young content creators last September. Grantees produced eight visual reports, and two series of podcasts, with each consisting of five or six episodes, which will be published on the platform.


Al Balad Theatre continues to provide a safe space for young artists and intellectuals, and invites all content creators and practitioners interested in arts and culture to publish their projects on this platform.
