Towards The Unknown: Refugee Journeys Photography Exhibition

The Ali Mustafa Memorial Collective is pleased to announce an exhibition featuring the work of photojournalist Tanya Bindra, the first recipient of the annual Ali Mustafa Memorial Award for People’s Journalism.

The award was established in 2014 to honour Ali Mustafa, a Toronto-based photojournalist who was killed by a Syrian regime barrel bomb in 2014.

Since accepting the award in March 2016, Tanya has been documenting the lives of refugees and asylum seekers in Germany, Italy and Greece. ‘Towards the Unknown’ examines the processes of identity formation and belonging among refugees and asylum-seekers, and captures the ambiguities and contradictions of their varied experiences.  You can read Tanya Bindra’s full artist statement here.

Please join us for an opening reception on Friday March 31st from 7-10 PM at the The Gladstone Hotel, where we will exhibit Tanya’s work along with some of Ali Mustafa’s photography on Syria.

The exhibition continues –  Saturday April 1st and Sunday April 2nd, from 12pm to 5pm.

We will also announce the winner of the 2017 Ali Mustafa Memorial Award for People’s Journalism at this opening.

There is no admission, but donations are appreciated.  We also encourage you to support our collective on Patreon.

This event is being promoted on this site because it is of interest to the Beit Zatoun community.  Please note that it is taking place at another Toronto venue.
