When Muslim women are so often depicted by others and seen through lenses of victimhood and criminality, or association to violence, how do we see ourselves for ourselves? Our bodies are historically and contemporarily viewed through white-washed imperialist lenses, and we so often internalise those lenses so that even our own eyes do not allow us to see ourselves for who we could be.
This workshop is a self-portrait painting session for Muslim women over the age of 17, open to all ethnicities, sexualities, abilities, faith-backgrounds and experiences. Come along to immerse yourself in a guided self-portrait painting session.
Please note this event will be filmed.
