Foodarama Brings the Arab Community Together to Share their Historical Heritage

The Arab Society in Manitoba held a Foodrama event and gathered members of the Arab communities in one place to share their clothes and food. This event is a good opportunity to introduce young people and children to the history of their countries of origin. In addition, Arab families can get to know each other and build new relationships that contribute to their stability in Winnipeg.

The twenty first episode of "Civic Platform" features Amani Kattan, Board member, Canadian Arab Association of Manitoba, CAAM- Winnipeg. Kattan speaks about the event and its importance to the Arab community.

Kattan also explained that through these activities, the Arab child can learn about the history of his fathers and grandfathers and how their lives were in the past. Kattan tells us about the agenda of the event and what will contain, fashion show, Arab food, and folk dances.

Zuher Almusre also spoke with Rana Abdulla, Collector of Palestinian traditional costume. Chartered Professional accountant and mother of four daughters, Winnipeg. Abdulla was an important addition to the event, as she was responsible for the Arab traditional clothing and was organizing the entry of fashion models to the audience during the event.
