Muslamic Makers is a diverse community of Muslims who are making and changing things. We hold events in London and Manchester to discuss ideas, build creative confidence and help our communities thrive. We’re creating spaces for Muslims to be not just ‘included’ but to own their work spaces and industries. We also have a thriving slack community too.
There’s poor representation across many sectors, there are barriers such as traditional upbringing, lack of opportunity, education and resource. But more importantly there are huge gaps in confidence, something we have witnessed first hand talking to Muslims who mentioned moments of feeling they don’t belong, fear of not being accepted etc… With the current narrative built around Muslims it’s not hard to understand why. But this is wrong.
