People who have saved this event:


Screening, takls and conversations with British Muslims.


There has been a growing number of Britons that choose to convert to Islam. Being
a born Muslim I want to know why? In the UK alone, a study concluded of conversions exceeding 100, 000 in 2011, mainly British women. This is growing substantially across the world.

An article published by the BBC suggested Islam will be the dominant world faith by 2070.
Within Liverpool there is a growing diaspora of Muslim converts and I would like to document their journey. In turn I want to create a verbatim theatre show around the experience of being a convert in Britain today and how political and propaganda on the media has shaped their relationships and views on the faith.
