Taalou Zorouna: Open Doors 2017


“Taaloo Zorouna” Arabic for “Come Visit With Us,” is a series of short video interviews with Syrian Refugees who have recently come to the Thompson Okanagan. It reflects the importance of strong social relations within the Syrian’s culture and acts as an invitation to get to know our new neighbours.


The video clips were designed for on-line interactive viewing. They address questions Canadians may have and offer glimpses of the culture and experiences of our new neighbours. Topics include: Missing Home, First Impressions, Hopes, Kids and Families, Traditions, and Struggles.


Our sincerest thanks to the families for opening their hearts and homes to us.
