Charity and activism in Shiism: How grassroots are changing the face of British Shiism

10:30am-12:00pm on Tuesday 30 March

Times shown are in GMT (UTC +0) up to the 27th March. For events on or after 28th March times are in BST (UTC +1).

What is the link between religious faith, grassroots activism, and charitable giving?

And how might charity serve as an expression of faith in the twenty-first century? Part of the Cambridge Festival  2021, this event brings together Shi’a Muslim activists and thinkers to speak about how their faith inspires them to give back, and what kinds of lessons might Shi’a forms of charitable activism be able to teach wider society in our hyper-connected and globalised modern world.

Confirmed speakers include members of global social justice network Who is Hussain?, and Dr Rebecca Masterton, author of Shi’i Spirituality for the Twenty-first Century.
