Being a part of the Beyond Borders project was a great experience for me. Not only did it give me a platform to teach what I love but it helped me to reach out to a wider community of people. The project really brought out the best in all that were involved.
The Beyond Borders project gave me the opportunity to meet many wonderful people. Imrana Mahmood, you helped break down some of the barriers. I hope we can break many more.
The Beyond Borders project was groundbreaking in that it created a greater awareness of the value of an otherwise mintority group and their relevance in the socio/political/cultural landscape.
Imrana has determination and strength, and I was impressed by her commitment to the project. She was highly motivated in bringing together all the neccessary elements to make the project a complete success.
Imrana is inspired, driven by something greater and creating social change. Blazing a trail...
Glad to see someone promoting dialogue around arts, culture and society. The work carried out by Imrana Mahmood and her team has no doubt left a legacy for others to follow.
Cool to see so many students involved and engaged, many of whom doing this sort of thing for the very first time.
A great bringing together of creativity from across the whole community.
ECHOES OF THE DIASPORA: EXPLORING THE STORIES OF BRITISH MUSLIM WOMEN
It was a great event, full of positivity, creativity and authenticity. Hats off to you Imrana for providing a platform for Muslim women and encouraging them to explore their voice in a creative way.
Our visibility in the mainstream media is all too often limited to reductive and demeaning stereotypes. The Echoes of the Diaspora project created a much needed platform for Muslim women to tell their own stories and take control of their own narrative... there was much to learn for those who chose to listen.
