British Muslims for Secular Democracy – Muslims for Progressive Values – Danish Institute: Let’s Talk (and Walking the Walk)
In 2014, Let’s Talk (and Walking the Walk) screened the documentary “Ijtihad: Nine Muslims with Progressive Values”, directed by Nancy Graham Holm of the Danish School of Media, in Washington, DC and London. These screenings were followed by ‘trialogues’ between policymakers, academics/activists, and members of the general public.
These trialogues took on such topics as Islamic perspectives of secular democracy and navigating between the rights of religious and non-religious groups in secular democracies. The project also produced two short PSA-style humorous videos on dress codes and feminism, and Christian-Muslim relations.
