Minister of Culture Haifa Al-Najjar, head of the higher committee of the Jerash Festival for Culture and Arts, decided to appoint Ayman Samawi as the festival’s executive director, as of Tuesday.

The government had terminated the assignment of Heavenly from the same position in September 2021, after 3 years of being occupied, due to the Corona pandemic.

The government made it clear at the time, with the aim of absorbing the overwhelming popular anger towards it, after the massive crowding that occurred at the concert of the Syrian singer George Wassouf.

During his career, Samawi took over the management of the Fuheis Festival “Jordan is History and Civilization” for several years, and also managed and supervised the Jordanian Song Festival in 2020.

Samawi said, “The Jerash Festival has a local and Arab position, and a great responsibility awaits me in which I will work to intensify cultural and artistic efforts to bring the festival to its position on the Arab map, which was accustomed to it at the level of the Arab world and restore its glory.”

He pointed out that the aim of holding festivals is to direct national, recreational, cultural and intellectual activities for people, in addition to presenting seminars and intellectual and cultural forums, which will work on activating everyone who has an appropriate role to serve this civilized message present in the enlightenment discourse of the Jordanian state to the world.
