   ISLAM AWARENESS WEEK
British Muslims are a diverse and vibrant community contributing to the well-being and prosperity of this nation in numerous ways. Yet, despite their important and varied contribution, they suffer significantly from various forms of discrimination, harassment and violence. These problems are rooted and find justification in ill-informed and stereotyped representations of Islam and Muslims.

Islam Awareness Week will be celebrated in Camden with a range of talks and discussions as well as a visual exhibition which will rotate to various venues around the borough in the coming months. The programme's objectives are to inform, educate, raise awareness and celebrate the depth and diversity of Islam in Camden and Britain at large.
