Herakut-Jordan-1

German duo Herakut is currently in Jordan invited by AptART and the French organization ACTED.
The new pieces were painted in  Za’atari, the world’s second-largest refugee camp in collaboration with local kids for whom the event was created for.
The three-month project, which runs until end of March 2014, builds on previous work with Syrian youth, refugees and internally displaced persons in the region. International and local artists in collaboration with Syrian and Jordanian youth will be creating 30 large-scale public art pieces in Jerash, Ajloun, Irbid, Mafraq and Zaatari Refugee camp.
These new murals are the first results of this wonderful project which is bringing smiles to the faces of many kids in the area. Have a look at the pictures below and don’t forget to check out Herakut’s travel blog. The images are wonderful!
