Honouring a Legacy

Honouring Majdi Bou-Matar with a New Bursary

Coinciding with the start of our Giving Tuesday campaign, MT Space launched a new initiative in collaboration with the family of Majdi Bou-Matar, in memory of our visionary, founding artistic director. All ticket sales and donations from our Honouring Majdi event on December 1st, 2022 as well as ongoing donations given through CanadaHelps will go towards establishing a new bursary fund.


This fund will be dedicated to offering financial support as well as mentorship from MT Space to a newcomer, immigrant, racialized. and emerging artist, each year.


As of December 2022 we have already raised $15,000, with a goal of raising $50,000 by September 2023 and naming the first beneficiary at the IMPACT23 Festival.
