A Tour to the Islamic Museum of Australia: Jewish Christian Muslim Association

The Jewish Christian Muslim Association invites you to:

A guided tour to Islamic Museum of Australia
Featuring the exhibitions “1.6 Billion Ways To Be Muslim” and “Our grandmothers”

Date: Wednesday 20 June 2018        Time: 12pm to 1pm
Location: Islamic Museum of Australia, 15A Anderson Rd, Thornbury, Melbourne, VIC 3071

As part of our continuing efforts in harbouring understanding and appreciation to the Abrahamic faith traditions, participants will explore the exhibition "1.6 Billion Ways To Be Muslim", an exhibition which started as a photographic narrative on social media and has since become a global initiative celebrating the diversity of modern day Muslims.

In addition, a second exhibition, “Our grandmothers”, celebrates the love, spirit, strength and wisdom embodied by grandmothers in Islam. This exhibition is part of the Multicultural Museums Victoria inaugural joint project celebrating the central role of grandmothers in the Chinese, Italian, Greek, Muslim and Jewish communities.

After the tour you may choose to stay for lunch at the cafeteria and meet up with old friends or meet new ones. Ticket price includes the cost of the tour only and lunch is extra. These encounters are interesting and rewarding and an important part of transforming relations between people of different faiths. We look forward to seeing you there.

Cost: $15 adult,  $10 concession
