Home, Mosque and Street: Muslim Women and Urban Design
London Women and Planning Forum Seminar
Wednesday 24th June
13.30-17.30 | Queen Mary, University of London
This half-day seminar focuses on Muslim women and their experiences of the built environment, particularly in London. Exploring religious, domestic and 'public' spaces, the seminar will address the ways in which Islamic design principles affect the everyday lives of Muslim women. It will also consider how planners, architects and urban designers can meet the needs of Muslim women from different communities and backgrounds and discuss how Muslim women working in these fields envisage urban change.
The seminar fee is £25 and £10 for concessions, payable on the day by cash or cheque. Please email Felicity Paynter at f.paynter[at]qmul.ac.uk to reserve a place, and see http://www.lwpf.org.uk/ for more information.
