Brushstrokes from Petra

As part of our ongoing social responsibility efforts to support environmental initiatives through its Sun Fund program, INVESTBANK, sponsored an art commissioning in order to hold a fundraising event for Petra National Trust’s (PNT) environmental and heritage programs. The exhibition is the works of hand selected; renowned artists and Petra’s youth entitled “Brushstrokes from Petra” at Dar Al-Anda Art Gallery.

INVESTBANK’s support for PNT’s Cultural Education and Awareness program, which is a pillar of its work to preserve Petra and Jordan’s rich heritage; comes through our financial subsidy of this unique fund raising program and exhibit.

The program engages young people in interactive and fun educational workshops that focus on the historic, cultural, economic and environmental values of archeological sites, with emphasis on the World Heritage Site of Petra. The goals of the program are to instill in Jordanian youth a sense of identity rooted in heritage, an appreciation of the importance of heritage preservation, civic engagement principles and understanding of economic opportunities related to culture and heritage.

The art exhibit presented a very limited number of commissioned works by Baqer Al Shaikh, Ghandi Al Jebawi, Hani Alqam and Juman Nimri. The artists worked with youth from the Petra region, all graduates of the Petra National Trust’s (PNT) Cultural Education and Awareness programs, to bring together art, culture and heritage in a vibrant and dynamic study.
