Everyday Muslim Heritage & Archive Initiative

Everyday Muslim Heritage & Archive Initiative aims to create a central archive of Muslim lives, arts, education and cultures from across the UK.

By collecting images, interviews and documents, the project provides a comprehensive portrayal of Muslim life in Britain.

Projects for 2018 included the story of British Black Muslims in London and Archiving the Heritage of Britain’s First Purpose Built Mosque.

To date they have created three new archive collections. These are available at Bishopsgate Institute, Surrey History Centre, George Padmore Institute and Brent Museums and Archives.

They also, work closely with teachers, educators and students to develop classroom resources and notes for teachers.
