How can you contribute to the Network in your country?: 

Due to our comprehensive experience, understand our society, basically, the need to enhance the concepts of Music and Arts culture through different channels, such as live concerts, workshops, television and radio shows, that are programmed and undertaken at ease, fulfilling what it should aim to. We are trying to change our cultural sector for the place it should be ; For the artists, they deserve more opportunities to know their substances, develop their projects, ideas and present themselves in a professional way. The society must begin to accept "artists" as a profession and having real artistic experiences not only in Amman "the capital", also other cities "which need more effort to work on". As for the audience, they need to experience what new and different, but not bizarre for them so they can interact with. The institutions in both private and public sectors need to know the importance of their roles in this movement, and the importance of the movement itself.
