"Creating safe spaces for Muslim young people to explore personal,
social, spiritual and political choices"

Faces and Places Gallery


Faces and Places is an ongoing project which enables young Muslims to use visuals rather than words to explore their identity.


The artwork explores issues such as exclusion, belonging, discrimination, religion, ethnic heritage and foreign policy. The initiative has been designed with the aim to tackle stereotypes which have been created about young Muslim people. It also aims to promote an increased involvement of young people within arts and culture. All the artwork exhibited on this website provides a summary of what that piece means to the artist and what they are expressing. We hope that this resource will allow for young people to be recognised for their talent within the arts and culture arena.


All artwork that has been contributed to The FAP Gallery has been created by young people aged between 12-25. Faces and Places encourage all types of creativity; using all forms of medium ranging from painting, photography, 3D, animation, illustration, graphics and computer art just to name a few.
