Event description

Description

SFU's Center for Comparative Muslim Studies is hosting a series of community conversations on what it is to be Muslim in the Lower Mainland. The events will be small gatherings of individuals in order to build relationships and unpack the experience of having complex Muslim identities in our current context. This is not intended to be conversations centred on Islam, theoretical or religious perspectives but rather a dialogue centred around people's lived experience. We hope to have a graphic facilitation artist present at each dialogue who will generate a graphic recording of the conversation (while maintaining participants' anonymity) that will be shared with the wider community afterwards.

Dialogue 1: "Being Muslim: Black and Muslim"


As part of Black History Month, the first dialogue we'll be hosting is centred on Black Muslim identity. We look forward to creating space to unpack the experience of being a Black Muslim in the Lower Mainland. The evening will include poetry and space for open and honest reflections.

Co-hosted by Halah Zumrawi and Aslam Bulbulbia

Seating is limited! Please reserve your spot ahead of time.
