Online Auction for the Majdi Bou-Matar Bursary 2023 

I call on your help again as we make a final push to solidify the establishment of the Majdi Bou-Matar Bursary fund. A year ago, we brought our milestone piece The Last 15 Seconds back home for a ‘final’ performance to honour the legacy of the founder of MT Space and the IMPACT Festival, Majdi Bou-Matar.”

A ‘do not be silent’ online auction

Beginning on Giving Tuesday, November 28, 2023, MT Space will be hosting an online silent auction with all proceeds going to towards the Majdi Bou-Matar Bursary fund. You can also donate directly to MT Space as well. All items and services were donated from community members or organizations that believe in continuing Majdi’s legacy of lifting barriers and supporting artists.

Take this opportunity to support the arts while finding that special someone in your life (or yourself) that perfect gift. More info below. 

We also accept regular cash donations at this time of year as well. All donations will go towards the bursary fund and help provide financial support and mentorship from MT Space for a newcomer, immigrant, and/or emerging artist working in the field of theatre.

Donations to MT Space, IMPACT, or the bursary can be made through CanadaHelps.
