Our Prayer is Protest is a Healing Arts festival organised by the Inclusive Mosque Initiative, Healing Justice LDN, and Voices that Shake! and curated by Farzana Khan.

The day will feature speakers discussing community building, gentrification, racism, health, wellness and repair, as well as holistic workshops on zine-making, breath work, yoga, dance, herbal walks, and creative writing.
