Your Weekly Digest on What Muslim Women Are Talking About

This Zine Is Celebrating Muslim Creatives. Launch Event Friday!

by in Identity on 1st July, 2017


Khidr Collective, an organisation that creates spaces and platforms for young Muslim artists and organisers has been working hard to create a bi-annual magazine for young Muslims, by young Muslims!

This is particularly exciting in a period where Muslims are accustomed to bad representation in the media. Ranging from traditional media outlets to self-appointed spokespeople, think thanks and organisations who speak on behalf of Muslim communities.

Join Khidr collective in celebrating the launch of Khidr collective zine at the Rich Mix in Bethnal Green on Friday 7th of July.  The evening will include a panel on “Creating Spaces, Muslim communities & The Arts” which will feature notable faces such as the Photographer Mahtab Hussain (You Get Me?), Fahim Alam (Film Pill) and Ambreen Razia, Actress and Playwright (Diary of a Hounslow Girl)

In addition, Farzana Khan, a community & youth organiser and co-ordinator at Voices that Shake will also be speaking on the relevance of Khidr today, Muslim communities and building ecologies of resistance.

If that wasn’t enough, there will also be poetry performances by Jamal Mehmood, Tasnima Ahmed, Momtaza Mehri,  and Suhaiymah Manzoor-Khan. This is an event you do not want to miss!

Tickets are £10 and you can buy a zine on the night.
