Honouring a LegacyHonouring 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.

MT Space is dedicated to theatre that centralizes marginalized voices to address social issues and constitute a vibrant intercultural community.
Founded in 2004 by Majdi Bou-Matar, MT Space has grown from producing one show every year to a touring company that also presents a season of theatre and a biennial international theatre festival called IMPACT.
Now under the leadership of Pam Patel, MT Space continues to engage and challenge audiences, bringing different communities together to create a community of difference.
