Celebrate the Difference: Talk with Rashid Mahmood Khan and Damon Scully

Thursday 24 May 2012 6.30pm to 7.30pm

Following the success of Channel 4’s barrier breaking documentary Make Bradford British,
Rashid Mahmood Khan and Damon Scully will be joining us to discuss their experience of filming the programme and issues of segregation in Bradford today.

Rashid and Damon have emerged as role models and advocates for positive change in Bradford since the airing of the programme in March. Believers in the fact that ignorance breeds resentment, the pair are now making regular public appearances and attempting to alter public perception, challenge prejudices and reduce racial segregation.

The talk has been scheduled to compliment our current exhibition Making Space by emerging Irish photographer Noel Bowler. Made over the course of three years, these photographs offer a fascinating insight into how private homes, office spaces, and industrial units are being adapted for prayer by Muslim communities throughout Ireland.
