“Ahlan Wa Sahlan”, Arabic for “Welcome”, is one of the first European street skate videos from Amman, Jordan. This film, filmed and edited by Jonas Strecke and Oscar Ong, intends to shed light on the social skateboarding initiative – 7Hills skatepark (@7hillspark), the many untouched street spots and skateboarding in Jordan.

Ahlan wa sahlan aims to illustrate the loving and warm-hearted people of Jordan, their environment, and their welcoming connection to all that pass through its magical land.’

7Hills provides a secure and open space for people from all walks of life and it offers lifelong tools like skateboards and arts, to defeat gender, racial, religious or cultural inequalities, build inclusive communities, and create an outlet. More info on www.7hillspark.com
