LUMINOUS Fest is a full-day Black Muslim arts festival that will be held during Eid-ul-Adha festivities on June 16th, 2018 – hosted by Oxum Creative Collective X Timaj Garad. Eid-ul-fitr is an islamic holiday following the month of Ramadan, commemorating the month of fast and honoring virtues that are celebrated in the muslim community such patience, resilience, love, and community. LUMINOUS Fest will embody these virtues by spotlighting a diverse set of artistic expression across mediums of theatre, poetry, film, mixed-media, and visual art forms to demonstrate the vital contributions of Black Muslim storytellers in all artistic disciplines. Black Muslims are continuing to make waves in the artworld, despite many barriers. However, our contributions are not always acknowledge or celebrated by the multiple communities we belong to. This event is open to all and intended as a space for community to gather as we amplify the voices of Black Muslims, honoring stories that heal, educate, inspire, and call us to build healthier communities. Join us to witness our Black Muslim Magic!
