A husband and wife team are hosting a discussion Saturday aimed at exploring how gender shapes their experience as Muslims.
The discussion, titled Being Muslim: The Gendered Experience, is part of the Vancouver Biennale — a bi-annual city-wide public art exhibition.
The discussion will be a safe space for interested people to share their personal experiences and stories, says Shagufta Pasta, a University of British Columbia educator and co-facilitator of the event.
"We really want to create a space for solidarity and a place where people can see one another's experiences," said Pasta.
"It'll be the community that brings the magic and the stories."
