On 22 May 2017, Manchester, and the world, were devastated by the attack on Manchester Arena that killed 23 people. One Manchester resident, Qaisra Shahraz, was quick to respond. Qaisra identified the need to tackle Islamophobia and bring Muslim and non-muslim communities together.
We are proud to have started MACFEST (Muslim Arts and Culture Festival) in Manchester, UK, and have loved partnering with schools, colleges, universities, venues and communities hosting educational events across the Greater Manchester area.
Please help us raise funds to grow MACFEST and continue our work internationally.
Qaisra Shahraz MBE, JP, FRSA Founder and Executive Director of MACFEST and Muslim Women’s Arts Foundation and Festival.
