Victorian Open Mosque Day 2018

Date: Sunday 16 April 2018      Time: 10am to 4pm
Location: Islamic Council of Victoria, 66-68 Jeffcott St, West Melbourne, Victoria, Australia 3003

Several Mosques opened their hearts and doors for the Islamic Council of Victoria’s (ICV) - Victorian Mosque Open Day project launch last year. Hundreds of Victorians flocked to a local Mosque near them to get to know their Muslim neighbours, partaking in guided Mosque tours, hijab tutorials, henna tattoo art, jumping castles and other activities for kids, sausage sizzles and discussions about Islamic beliefs.

The state-wide annual event, supported by the Victorian Multicultural Commission and Victorian Government (Office of Multicultural Affairs and Social Cohesion) is back this year, in an attempt to drum out the rise of Islamophobia.

Participating Mosques will open their doors to the Victorian public ‪on Sunday, April 15 anytime between ‪10-4pm.
