Organiser MACFEST - Muslim Arts and Culture Festival.

Organiser of MACFEST 2021: Celebrating Bolton's MACFEST

MACFESTUK is a ground-breaking, award-winning festival hosted across Greater Manchester and the North West - and across the world! We celebrate art, literature, music, history, culture, photography, cuisine, children, youth and women and the heritage of the Muslim diaspora. We offer over 70 events, most of which are free and digital, and many are hosted by schools and colleges. Muslim Arts and Culture Festival aims to bring Muslim and non-Muslim communities together, promote social inclusion and overcome barriers.

This great initiative is led by prize-winning author, educationist and peace activist Qaisra Shahraz MBE FRSA, who features in the prestigious Power 100 List of the most influential Muslims in the UK. Qaisra has dedicated her life to women's rights, and fighting Islamophobia, racism and all forms of discrimination. She and the fantastic MACFEST team are committed to building bridges between communities in the UK and around the world.
