Exhibition Islam hosted at the Brewhouse Arts Centre, Burton upon Trent, closed last night [Wednesday 27th February] and has been hailed by all involved as an overwhelming success.

The event has seen a huge response from all areas of the community, with residents enjoying a variety of activities including food stalls, hand painting, storytelling, music and poetry.

The exhibition was a unique three day event, which aspired to enlighten local communities of the richness and diversity of Islam. The exhibition allowed members of the community to interact by asking questions and sharing experiences.

The exhibition was run by the Midlands Muslim Community in partnership with a host of organisations including East Staffordshire Borough Council.

There were a variety of topics on display including the ‘Five Pillars and basic beliefs of Islam’, ‘Life of Prophet Muhammad’ and ‘Islamic Architecture, Art and Calligraphy’.

Shaid Hussain, member of the Midlands Muslim Community, said: “The Exhibition was a great success with people coming from all sections of the local community. I would like to thank the partners, the volunteers and the visitors for making this possible.”

Councillor Bernard Peters, Deputy Leader for Service Commissioning, added: “The response from the communities within East Staffordshire has been excellent. The exhibition has enabled residents and schools to gain an insight into the Islamic religion and the life of a Muslim through an engaging and interactive exhibition.”

“I’m pleased that the Midlands Muslim Community group chose the Brewhouse as the facility to host the event. The Brewhouse Arts Centre, with its multiple rooms, in house cinema and its central location, was the ideal venue to host such an impressive exhibition.”
