About The Event
The professional development event on Creative Arts and Media will facilitate leadership skills, representation, and confidence in girls and women, particularly Muslim women and women of colour in all creative fields. The objective for this event is to showcase the importance of representation in creative arts particularly in film. Women of colour are an underrepresented minority in creative media who are not paid equally, given equal opportunities, and often limited to gender-bias within those industries. Female and Muslim characters are not accurately represented in media and are limited to stereotypical roles and racial biases. Girls and women will learn from accomplished persons of colour involved in various facets of the film industry. This workshop will increase the quality of life of women and girls through community programs that offer confidence building, professional development and educational workshops. The event will cater people of all faiths and backgrounds including Muslim women.
