A Marketplace of Ideas
Date: February 23-24, 2019
Venue: 17-25 New Inn Yard, London, EC2A 3EA, UK
A weekend promoting collaboration and thinking around the idea of a British Islam and encouraging the development of British Muslim thought, identity and culture; as well as creating a space for the development of networks and partnerships. It does this by promoting an open, inclusive and forward-looking arena for debate, discussion and sharing of ideas that are rooted in the British context. But this is not an academic event; it is about using all avenues possible, including art and culture, to enhance Muslim voices.
There is no set theme, except for the concept of “a marketplace of ideas” where each speaker sets up their stall to share their ideas which are discussed and debated with the audience. We always try to ensure the conference is as inclusive and as open a platform as possible.
The parallel sessions offer plenty to absorb and enjoy and are designed to be short, punchy presentations that can stimulate debate and discussion. Presenters speak for their own ideas and do not represent the views of New Horizons in British Islam. Attendees are free to pick and choose which sessions to go to, dip in and out of sessions, or not attend sessions at all!
