First Mural: Amman, Jordan, March 2008
Our first mural was painted in March 2008 by Iraqi children/youth living in Amman Jordan, working for six weeks under the supervision and inspiration of Iraqi artist Thamer Dawood. The group worked at the beautiful Dar Al Anda Gallery, in space generously donated by the owner, Majdoline Al-Ghezawi Al-Ghoul.
In November 2008 this mural was one of five finalists selected from hundreds of entries for the Arts Venture Freedom to Create Prize in the Youth Category. An image of the mural was on prominent display throughout the awards ceremony in London.
