Project Nur hosts first annual Muslim Cultural Bazaar

Julian Dean  Journal Contributor

Last Wednesday, Project Nur hosted the first annual Muslim Cultural Bazaar at the C. Walsh Theater. Mary Jaber, of the organization’s e-board, explains Project Nur as a distinct and alternative Muslim voice, a civic identity grounded in pluralism and moderate thinking and action. Project Nur emphasizes civic action with the goal of forging a cohesive and mutually respectful multicultural community of university students committed to the advancement of human rights, civil rights, social justice, tolerance, understanding, and co-existence.


Bazaar performers included an Oud player, Nigerian models, poetry readings, an Aftab Dance Group (Persian Girls), [Moroccan] Amoud Band, and a Senegalese Band.
