Zatoun is totally thrilled to have landed on firm ground in a large, beautiful space and a terrific location in the heart of activist Toronto. For six years Zatoun has existed in the cloud -- that is, on the web and in the living rooms, garages, and basements of supporters across Canada and the US.

Zatoun now has a home: Beit Zatoun, which translates as House of Olive (beit means house in both Arabic and Hebrew). Beit Zatoun is a culture and art venue providing gallery and performance space for the social justice and human rights community in Toronto. By hosting exhibits, talks, screenings, plays, music, dance and workshops, Beit Zatoun aims to create experience, compassion and empathy as the ultimate means to peace.

frontAlthough at the core of Beit Zatoun, the question of Israel/Palestine is but an intersection point of many struggles and human dimensions. Beit Zatoun invites and welcomes all communities resisting oppression and affirming the rights of individuals everywhere to live in dignity and freedom.

Beit Zatoun also serves as the global office and administrative centre for Project Hope, an NGO working with youth in Palestine and a long-time partner of Zatoun. All Zatoun products are available for sale at Beit Zatoun.  Fair Trade products from Latin America are also sold including coffee and woollen crafts.

Beit Zatoun may be located in Toronto, but the entire Zatoun community in North America can rejoice at this most important step. Maybe the future holds more Beit Zatoun's in other cities on this continent.
