Safaryat program aims to promote technical and cultural encounters and practices among active cultural and artistic groups with a focus on creating a common artistic and cultural production process, empowering the participants in their cultural work and developing a broader and decentralized cultural system.
Since its establishment at the beginning of 2015 in Irbid, Jordan, the City Artists Network has been believing in the importance of having programs that promote cultural exchange and artistic encounters between artists and cultural activists wherever they are from in this world. As a result of our own experience in offering many of our team members such kind of opportunities, the network significantly concluded that the impact of those cross-cultural experiences and having those various arts and cultural exposures around the world is an essential teaching tool, and a legitimate right to all artists to have the freedom to move, meet new cultures and develop themselves.
This Includes achieving understanding, cooperation and cohesion among multicultural communities for more capacity of contributing in the expansion of international partnerships, expanding the circle of dialogue, gaining more cultural skills, higher exchange of ideas, exploration, and thus creating contemporary, new and common forms of art and culture.
The Main Goal of Safryat program, which is directly connected to one of the core objectives of the City Artists Network “MedeArts” and its strategies for the period of 2020-’25 is; to develop a decentralized cultural system by promoting cultural exchanges and joint art productions between individuals or active groups from the Arab region, Europe, and Jordan. Including; Empowering artists through group learning, promoting the concept of cultural diversity, intercultural dialogue, enhancing the communication, networking and resource exchange, and building a long-term and strong relationships between artists
