On December 10th, Yalla held its first event, Confronting Ourselves, at Free Time cafe in Toronto. Its purpose was to showcase some of Yalla’s favorite submissions as well as provide us with an opportunity to raise funds for our future endeavors. The night consisted of readings and live music.
The event drew an audience of over 100 Arab and Jewish youths, as well as adults. We would like to thank everyone who showed up and hope to see them all again at our next event.
