A Tour of the Islamic Museum of Australia organised by the Jewish Christian Muslim Association of Australia Women' Committee

The JCMA Women’s committee is pleased to invite you to a guided tour of the Islamic Museum of Australia.

Date; Wednesday 20 June 2018
Time: 12 pm to 1 pm
Cost: $15/adult,  $10 concession
Full details are on the flyer.
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 Multicultural Museums Victoria’s 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.
