In collaboration with Sarah Waithe, Islamic Relief Canada created a capsule collection to celebrate the talent of Black Muslim artists in our community.
Sarah Waithe (she/her) is Toronto based artist and researcher, and a second-generation Canadian whose roots are from Morocco and Trinidad. This collection showcases her artwork, communicating topics related to her Black and Muslim identity, belonging, community, and love. She also uses art as a way to reconnect to her parents' culture and homeland.
All proceeds from this collection will be donated to the Black Muslim Youth Beyond Success project from theJane Finch Community and Family Centre. This project provides mentorship opportunities and support to marginalized back Muslim youth by connecting them with outreach workers and mentors.
