Partnering with MT Space, Levant campaigned to help raise over $13,900 to bring playwright and actor Ahmad Meree to Canada. More than 150 people came together to make this happen! We are so grateful, and overwhelmed by the solidarity and support that we experienced during this campaign.
Upon his arrival, Ahmad began working with MT Space, putting to use his talents in theatre and acting. Ahmad has also been working as an Arabic teacher at the Family Centre. MT Space, Levant, and Ahmad wish to offer their combined thanks for everyone who made his arrival to Canada possible.
As for what's new with Ahmad, he's been quite busy. In 2017 he produced Adrenaline through working with MT Space, going on to show the work in Toronto and Vancouver. He's now working on a piece entitled Suitcase through his work with Theatre Mada. To top things off, he will be joining JM Drama Alumni and the Registry Theatre as an artist-in-residence in the coming year. Somehow he also managed to write the play for Levant Dabke's 2018 cultural night Sahel el Ward. Not bad at all Ahmad! Thank you for making Canada yours in a very short time!
