Matthew House | World Table Virtual Screening & Panel Event

event fundraiser refugee

Join us for a virtual screening of the World Table Series followed by a moderated discussion about refugee representation with the creators.

In 2020, Matthew House produced a six part video series directed by Yazmeen Kanji, founder of Films With A Cause, called World Table. Each episode highlights the story of a former refugee while they teach us to cook a dish from their countries of origin.

We are hosting a live event with our friends at Films With A Cause to explore how refugees can be positively and ethically portrayed in media campaigns. The representation of refugee populations directly impacts their experiences and as such, we are striving to promote beneficial stories and storytelling methods.

Date: February 16th
Time: 5:00pm -6:00pm


Yazmeen Kanji - Founder and Creative Director of Films With A Cause
Jacky Tuinstra - Executive Director of Matthew House Toronto

Shireen Salti - Executive Director of the Canadian Arab Institute
