Clouds Over Sidra: Film Screening and Panel Discussion

Take part in an immersive experience by viewing the short film "Clouds Over Sidra" using virtual reality technology, followed by a panel discussion.

United Nations Creative Director Gabo Arora tells the story of life inside a refugee camp in Jordan through the eyes of a 12-year-old girl named Sidra, placing viewers within the centre of the camp through a 360-degree experience.

The Sidra Project is a unique collaboration between the United Nations and Artscape that is designed to sustain interest and support for refugees to ensure their successful resettlement in Canada.

This event is hosted by the Internationally Educated Social Work Professionals (IESW) Bridging Program in collaboration with Sistering and Artscape.
