Healing Together: Overcoming Anti-Indigenous Racism and Islamophobia Art Exhibition

In October 2021 the CCMS held an art exhibition and reception in honor of Islamic History Month with the theme of Healing Together: Overcoming Anti-Indigenous Racism and Islamophobia.

The diversity of Muslim art and cultural practices are not often highlighted or celebrated. This exhibition and reception showcased art from Muslim artists across the Lower Mainland, ranging from illustration, to sculpture, to poetry, to painting. Through artistic expression, we explore healing in the face of anti-Indigenous racism and islamophobia. What does healing look like across space and culture? What work can we do in our communities to heal from the impact of bigotry and hatred? How can our communities center healing as a practice.

We are happy to share that this exhibition has been adapted so it can be enjoyed in a virtual format. Click the link below to view some of the featured artwork, and view a full recording of the event.
