Postering Peace / Des posters de la paix

After receiving a small grant from the Michaelle Jean Foundation, artist Aquil Virani asked young Muslims across Quebec to submit ideas and slogans to be integrated into a set of publicly posted art prints. The goal of these collaborative creations is to battle islamophobia while humanizing and re-appropriating the image of Islam within the province. They serve as a public platform to elevate the voices of Muslim youth.

Les jeunes de diverses communautés musulmanes du Québec ont soumis des slogans pour lutter contre l’islamophobie. Inspiré par ces idées, l’artiste Aquil Virani a créé des affiches qui humanisent l’islam et affirment le droit des musulman-e-s de se représenter selon leurs propres termes.
