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.

Français : 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.
