The Media Line led over twenty years ago in pioneering the American independent news agency in the Middle East, arguably the first in the region. We have always stayed true to our mission: to provide you with contextual sourced and trustworthy news. In an age of fake news masquerading as journalism, The Media Line plays a crucial role in providing fact-based news that deserves your support.

We're proud of the dozens of young students we've trained in our Press and Policy Student Program who will form the vanguard of the next generation of journalists to the benefit of countless millions of news readers.

Look out for exciting new additions as we enter 2022.

TPFF presents its third annual program for its young audience members – hands-on Tatreez (embroidery) workshop

About this event

UPDATE: We’ve added a new time slot. The Tatreez Workshop will have sessions running at 12pm – 1pm AND 3pm – 4pm.

About the event:

TPFF presents its third annual program designed especially for youth. This hands-on craft workshop led by Amnna Attia will teach the artistic and cultural tradition of Palestinian tatreez, including the intricate motifs, storytelling preserved in every stitch and the techniques required to make them come to life.

Participants will embroider fabric with colourful Palestinian symbols and can continue practicing their skills at home afterwards. All materials are provided and no previous experience is required. Recommended age group: 12+

About the instructor:

Amnna Attia is a Toronto-based artist studying at the Contemporary Arts Department at Etobicoke School of the Arts. Attia explores her Arab-Palestinian heritage through digital art and embroidery. Her interest in her personal heritage sparked a passion for learning about other cultures, exploring their customs, and what makes them unique including styles of artistic expression. Attia has curated for the Albright Knox Museum’s 2021 The Presence of Absence exhibition and The Fearless Artist Pop Up Gallery. Her work has been exhibited in group shows at the Gladstone Hotel, Albright Knox Museum, Art Gallery of Mississauga, the Neilson Park Creative Centre, and the Virtual Art Gallery of Experiences Canada. Her work has been published in Ultraviolet Magazine, the Growth Virtual Zine, Arts Etobicoke Impact Report, Toronto Six Hundred Magazine, Original Magazine and will soon be published in the Toronto Public Library and Opaline Magazine.
