Our Mission and Values

Amal works to tackle a root cause of the discrimination that adversely affects the lives of all Muslims in the UK – a dominant narrative which is negative, stereotyping and monolithic. We exist to help shift the narrative to one that is confident, diverse and just.

How do we do this?

Growing Opportunities
We support three sets of stakeholders – Muslim communities, artists, and mainly mainstream arts and cultural organisations – to work more closely together to grow opportunities for Muslims to fully express and realise their creative potential and to share and celebrate this creativity with others.

Enabling Stakeholders
Through our practical programmes of support and our co-created projects, we incentivise and enable our stakeholders to do work that is unlikely to happen otherwise – because Muslims and Muslim organisations have been deterred from creative engagement by multiple barriers including deprivation, because there is little understanding of the practice of Muslim artists in the mainstream and little action geared towards tackling Islamophobia, and because mainstream arts and cultural organisations have limited connections to Muslim artists and community groups.

Authentic Engagement
The result of our work is that more Muslims engage in creative activity, more Muslim organisations offer creative activities to their communities, Muslim artists have more opportunities to sustain successful careers and more arts organisations serve Muslim communities and artists in a less tokenised and more authentic way.

Giving a Voice
Over time these outcomes result in a greater diversity of Muslim stories being told and heard, increased visibility for Muslims in the creative sectors and richer encounters between Muslims and other communities.

Did you know?

Muslims are the largest minority in the UK, 6.5% of the population. Collectively, they are in the worst socio-economic position in the country. They have been subjected to relentless political, media and policy scrutiny which is largely negative. As a result, the British public feels much more negatively towards Muslims than it does towards any other group except Gypsy and Irish Travellers.

The Way We Work

Our cornerstone programme Amal Connects recognises that shifting the narrative is about growing opportunities for Muslims to tell their own stories in their own ways. We help to do this through our six work programmes: consulting, connecting, creative visualisation, co-created projects, convening and capacity building. We follow three principles in our work:

Because to grow the creative potential of some of the communities least engaged in mainstream creative activity, opportunities must be taken to them. We therefore currently work in two hub locations, Birmingham and Bradford. After London these are the largest centres of Muslim population in the UK.

Because this puts the interests, concerns and aspirations of Muslim communities at the centre of everything we do.

Because it is by growing the ways our three sets of stakeholders work together that we create the change we seek, a community of practice in the creative sectors that fully represents Muslims.
