American Muslim Futures

May 20, 2020 - December 31, 2020
American Muslim Futures is an online exhibition of work that pairs the creativity of visual and performing artists with the conviction of civil rights advocates to realize new civic futures where all Americans live free from hate and discrimination. This exhibition is a collaboration between Shangri La and Muslim Advocates

Check out the recording of the live kick-off concert here!

American Muslim Futures invites Muslim and allied/aligned artists of all mediums (visual, performing, literary, fashion, etc.) to help realize a country free of hate and oppression.

Travel inside your vision of a truly just future: what do you see, hear, read?

We’re asking you to create the images, songs, poems, fashions, performances, and cultures of this America. These works can be intimate to your life, family, and traditions, or they can be expansive in addressing new civic and social realities. 

Up to 20 artists will receive $600 and be showcased in this official digital exhibit, opening portals for us to follow into a better tomorrow.

Deadline: July 26, 2020

Co-created by Muslim Advocates & the Shangri La Museum of Islamic Art, Culture & Design
