AMMAN — The Jabal Amman Residents Association (JARA) has announced that the 10th Souk JARA will kick off on Friday and continue until September 26.

Souk JARA 2014 will showcase a number of projects that aim to recycle scrap materials to become art pieces, according to a statement from the association.

“This comes as part of the souk’s message to raise awareness about the importance of recycling to preserve the environment of the city of Amman [and] reduce negative consumerist habits,” the statement said.

“These kinds of initiatives may lead, in the long term, to the creation of new job opportunities in the creative sector,” said Khader Qawwas, vice president and acting president of JARA.
