Put yourself in the shoes of another person for a unique evening of storytelling, and join us to hear the stories of young Muslims from around the UK, performed by a diverse cast of actors.

 

Background:

VOICES, a social start-up, has been taking submissions from young Muslims over the last year – some of which will be performed during this evening. The aim of the group is to creatively challenge perceptions through the sharing and telling of people’s stories.

Young Muslim Voices is VOICES’ first project and consists of live events and online films of personal stories written by young Muslims in the UK, and performed by diverse casts of actors in order to challenge perceptions and draw out our shared humanity.

After a hugely successful first event last year at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, the Young Muslim Voices project is bringing more stories to the UK stage, aiming to share the stories with as wide an audience as possible and in doing so, challenging perceptions and promoting a community of diversity.


Voices gives myself and other British Muslims our voices back. Voices is a new platform, for British Muslims to air their stories, feelings, and experiences. Voices tackles Islamophobia and will help build bridges between us all

This has been a life-changing experience for me. Watching my story get told on stage so well helped me to realise that my voice has value and does deserve to be heard. Thank you. So much.
Ali Zaidi, whose brilliant story 'I, Man Dem.' featured at the last event at Shakespeare's Globe Theatre

 

Voices is about people representing themselves and celebrating a community of diversity. In the current climate there is a growing ‘Us’ versus ‘Them’ narrative and so it has never been more important to listen to and share each other’s experiences and celebrate our differences and shared humanity
