Between Reality and Dreams
Celebrating innovation and entrepreneurship
As Spring arrives, we’re reminded of growth and transformation, and there’s no industry more constantly evolving than the media and tech business.
Our recent focus has been on helping entrepreneurs sell their products and services online. As part of our efforts, we had the pleasure of interviewing an expert, Tareq Samara, who shared invaluable insights on the subject.
We unveiled our new website, where you can easily access all our services and explore our portfolio of projects. Whether you’re looking to expand your online presence or you’re a business seeking innovative media solutions, our website is designed to help you achieve your goals.
We have a lot in store for you this month, including art, flashbacks, and the latest social media trends.
Stay tuned for updates from Wishbox Media!

What we have been up to
We published several press releases for the International Labor Organization (ILO) on projects related to entrepreneurship for women, employment opportunities for youth and Syrian refugees in Jordan, and people with disabilities.
These projects aim to empower women, promote gender equality, highlight more inclusive and sustainable economic growth, and spotlight the importance of climate change.
In April, we’ll be publishing a promotional video for the ILO about a project on cultural heritage in the governorates of Irbid and Mafraq. The project provides long-term employment opportunities for young people whose job is to take care of the archaeological sites in these areas.
New website: Rejoice! Our brand new website is here. It displays our work more visually and makes it easier for you to contact us. We can't wait to hear from you!
Celebrating Art and Politics: Our two-year art and social project, supported by the Konrad Adenauer Foundation and in partnership with Omar Al Abdallat, concluded with the "Between Dreams and Reality" exhibition featuring Jordanian artists. The event also marked the release of an art book showcasing the works of the participating artists.
Wishbox Media founder Rana F. Sweis participated in an International Women's Day event organized by the French Development Agency (CFI) and the Qarib media program to discuss women's empowerment through social media and technology.
We conducted a four-day social media training session at the Canadian Embassy in Amman that focused on leveraging social media platforms to promote the embassy's content and engage with online audiences.
Live Talks: Our live talk this month featured online business coach Tareq Samara who spoke about the importance of creating consistent content for anyone who wants to turn their passion or side project into a
money-making venture. #LIVETALKS

Our media consumption
While the latest tech always grabs our attention, sometimes it's important to take a step back and revisit the past. That's where the nostalgic TV simulator comes in - it's the perfect way to get lost in a decade and experience a piece of history. Why not indulge in a bit of nostalgia? We think it's a moral imperative.
We hope you’ve enjoyed this month’s installment of WishboxMedia newsletter. Remember, we’re all ears, so please drop us a note with your feedback, suggestions, and collaboration ideas.
Here’s hoping for a warm Spring soon! 🌻
