Taking advantage of the beautiful Vancouver summer and the unique setting of the Paradise Has Many Gates installation in Vanier Park, the Centre for Comparative Muslim Studies added to a day of "Sharing Our Stories" hosted by the Vancouver Biennale with a public dialogue around the gendered experience of being Muslim.

The day's programming also included a screening of digital stories produced by the Voices of Muslim Women, photographs taken by Alia Youssef of the Sisters Project and a Chat and Chai.
