Events Calendar

// Surgada d’awdooyateh

We have a few different types of circle types. Select the one that interests you (whether its for a dialect you already know, or want to learn) and register through the eventbrite tool to save your virtual seat. Looking forward to meeting you soon!

All times are in the Eastern timezone in Toronto — please convert the time into your timezone using www.timeanddate.com.

As we get closer to the end of each Season (aqma), you will see a lot of events have ended. Not to worry, a new Season begins every three months — we’ll start Season 10 in July 2022 with a fresh calendar — subscribe on our homepage if you’d like the new calendar delivered to your inbox.

Convert all of the event times below into your own timezone using http://www.timeanddate.com.
