Breaking the Fast 2016 – Glittering Showcase of Rad Muslim Artists
June 23, 2016- 6:30 pm
Ramadan 1437 | June 23
Cost: $5-$20 sliding scale, no one turned away
This event will take place on unceded and occupied Coast Salish territories, specifically, xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, sḵwx̱wú7mesh, Stó:lō, Burrard and Tsleil-Waututh Nations.
Join us for a night of fabulous performances, comedy, poetry, music and much more by glittering, rad, talented Muslims! A detailed list of performers coming soon!
Every year we gather to showcase the artists within our communities, celebrate Ramadan and the many ways of being Muslim (queer, trans*, glittery, spiritual, cultural, religious, secular, observant, progressive, sufi, feminist, genderqueer, gender fabulous, taqwacore, activists, resisters and so much more).
Ramadan is a time of reflection, celebration, an awakening of the body, the mind, the heart, the spirit. What better way to celebrate than with a night of art showcasing Muslim voices?
ALL WELCOME! Please spread the word far and wide! This is an event showcasing Muslim voices but open to all!
Please note that this event is being organized within an intentionally anti-oppressive framework that centers, amongst others, queer and feminist voices.
We will make a prayer space available for those fasting and wanting to do Salah/Salat and ensure that we break in time for this.
Heartwood Cafe’s washrooms are all genders but currently not wheelchair or scooter accessible. We have made an agreement with the neighbouring Starbucks who have kindly welcomed our patrons to use their fully accessible washrooms without the need to purchase anything.
Please come scent-reduced.
