My Art & Soul

My Art & Soul was an event conceived by PEER Ambassadors that took place in September 2018. It welcomed everyone with a creative passion or interest for a chilled evening of 'anti-networking', a response to the necessity of meeting other creatives but rejecting the fact that these networks are often forged by privilege and 'who you know'. 

The session included talks from One of My Kind (OOMK), a collaborative publishing practice led by Rose NordinSofia Niazi and Heiba Lamara, and Najwa Umran who founded Female Muslim Creatives (FMC), a new arts organisation that seeks to amplify the work of Muslim, female-identifying artists in the U.K and across the world.

The event created a space to spark conversation, thoughts, and new ideas in everyone that attended, not only from the speakers but from one another. We created future bonds, collaborations and it was a chance for people with a great platform to inspire and encourage other creatives to keep creating.
