Compass – Islam on Parade (2005)


There are 250,000 Muslims living in Australia from vastly different cultural and ethnic backgrounds. In the wake of the terrorist bombings around the world, a young and dynamic Muslim couple from Melbourne, are working to dispel some stereotypes and to build bridges with other Australians.

Curator’s notes

These thoughtfully selected spirited people represent a growing number of second generation Muslims, keen to show the rest of us that Islam can be progressive and peace loving and very Australian.
