Why Don’t We Just Talk to Each Other? – Building Cross-Sector Connections to Make Muslim Heritage More Accessible.


26 September 2015 10:30 am to 2:00 pm
Bishopsgate Institute; 230 Bishopsgate, London, EC2M 4QH,

Are you collecting materials or carrying out research on Muslim history or heritage? Do you want to develop a manifesto of cross-sector collaboration with others working in this expanding field? If yes, join us for an event aimed at artists, journalists, academics, curators, librarians, archivists and activists. This informal event explores issues such as funding, accessibility and engagement through group discussions, short presentations and networking opportunities.

Based on the feedback from the delegates of our successful inaugural symposium earlier this year, the Everyday Muslim team has organised a half-day session for you to network, share and discuss the issues you face regarding cross-sector collaboration in the context of Muslim heritage in the UK.
