The event will explore the way in which faith inspires and influences people to live, work and act in Birmingham’s diverse urban spaces. Bringing together individuals from different faith communities and organisations with researchers from within the social sciences at the University of Birmingham to consider a range of timely and relevant issues, some of the highlights will include:
Talks by some of Birmingham’s most dynamic organisations including Islamic Relief, St Peter’s Saltley Trust & Birmingham Citizens
A short film and discussion about the restoration of one of Birmingham’s historic buildings, the Grade II listed Green Lane Masjid
Presentations about cutting edge research being undertaken in the city of Birmingham and its surrounds
The launch of the findings from a University of Birmingham project exploring Islamophobia
The chance to help shape and inform future research and policy
An opportunity to observe Muslim congregational prayers
