Organised by Arabian Nites and in partnership with Muslim Aid and other organisations, the Eid Souk was an event inspired by the markets of the Middle East. A collection of clothes, food, and arts and crafts went on sale, in preparation for the celebrations of Eid ul-Adha this October.
In promotion of Leave a Legacy, a campaign that promotes empowering lives through your will, Muslim Aid took to the stage to introduce a live art piece. Emulating the work of American artist Candy Chang, audience members were encouraged to write down their dreams and aspirations on the “before I die…” chalk-board. The result was a wall of bright colours, words and statements - a visual reminder of the legacies and accomplishments to be fulfilled in life. Muslim Aid also provided hot food, donating all proceeds to charity, and held an auction selling paintings, games for children and much more. "It was an enjoyable weekend", said Fatima Hagi, staff member at Muslim Aid. "It was nice to see family members spend time together and enjoy the activities around".
