Join the ‘Girls in Action,’ Anisa, Sabriya, Hannah, Houaria, Maryam and Eaman, as they show you how to ‘Be Yourself!’
This series of three short films, which were scripted, filmed, edited and premiered by the group, aim to increase awareness of young Muslim women’s lives and challenge existing stereotypes.
The film has been complemented by a podcast documenting their progress (which can be found at the St Paul’s Community Development Trust website), and a Silver Arts Award which recognises the involvement of the group in Arts activities.
The project was funded by Mediabox and St Paul’s Community Development Trust through the Balsall Heath Extended School’s Cluster. Additional help and support was provided by Rachel, Ally Sultana from Including Women! and Aimee Green who has assisted the group in completing their Silver Arts Awards.
