Muslamics Makers is a small monthly meetup to get muslim makers together to discuss, show and tell, debate, and share their thinking.
There's a shortage of minority groups involved in and leading the way in creative, tech startup, social enterprise, arts and making industries. We want to see more collaboration, exploration and general creative technological awesomeness coming from the Muslim community and we think this is a way to kickstart that. As Muslims involved in these spaces grow we’re looking to create a fresh space for collaboration, networking and general awesomeness and creating safe space that isn't fuelled by alcohol.
Big shoutout to Digital Agency UsTwo for not only letting us use there venue but sponsoring food too!

Who are we?
Murtaza - I’m a experience designer working on digital products and startups. I helped co-found casseroleclub.com alongside FutureGov. I’m into social enterprise, videography and Arsenal.
Arfah - I head up the Marketing at Makers Academy, a 12 week coding bootcamp. I co-founded Discoverables and went through a social tech accelerator where I had a crazy #startupkid journey. I am also trustee of youth charity Spark-Mettle and spend my spare time binging on TV shows and geeking up on podcasts.
Note: This event is open to people of all faiths and none! We just want to create a space to showcase what people in the muslim community are up too!
