Ways To Be Muslim

An exhibition of contemporary Muslim life. With the growing public debate on the status of Muslims in the West, Peter Drew’s street art campaign 1.6 Billion Ways To Be Muslim playfully challenged that conversation with his unique hand printed posters. Ways To Be Muslim
reinvents this campaign through the photography and videography of six young Australian Muslims as they set
out to discover just how many ways there are. This topical exhibition and
exciting public program shares the lives of everyday Australian Muslims. The Islamic Museum of Australia affords a cultural immersion in the art, history and discovery of Islam and Muslims in Australia. By showcasing a wealth of contemporary artistic expression and an extensive cultural heritage, IMA facilitates space for critical reflection and personal interpretation – in the act of sharing, common myths and prejudices are dispelled and mutual understanding is established.
