📸: @flashculturephoto • I had the pleasure of witnessing @evolve_initiative’s 2nd anniversary as my first event of 2020! Didn’t know exactly what to expect but could never have anticipated being as touched and moved as I was. • The Discovery Space is a space where “the work” is being done. A space organised by Muslim women to be safe and independent for 18-25 year olds to come together to talk and explore ideas judgement free. • I’ve been thinking a lot about spaces and the sorts of spaces we need to be able to breathe and reflect and recuperate in the conditions we are in. Discovery Space is somewhere clearly doing that work and I felt so inspired coming away from the day and feeling equipped to take the steps I need to create the sorts of spaces I need to be in with the people I need to be in them with. • 2020 is a year I’m hoping to focus on slowing down, reflecting more deeply and responding at my own pace, not the pace we impose on one another. A good friend told me last year that the best things move at the pace of trust – I think that is why organic spaces curated to facilitate safety for us to speak on our own terms are sites of incompatible politicisation and prompts for amazing mobilisation. • I hope @evolve_initiative and especially Ghazalla can recognise how important the work they’re doing is and that whilst they will rarely be called organisers, activists or grassroots community workers; they are all those things and so much more. • Thank you for inspiring me and reminding me of the importance of spaces to breathe, validate and move forward in. May Allah shower abundance on your work and selves, Ameen. • And thank you for the nourishing kindness and love and warmth I felt from all in your space! Thanks for allowing me to share my thoughts on how and why we tell our stories.
