This years event was in support of the Gaza emergency appeal, with the help of Islamic Relief. In response to the current situation we showcased a live art performance by Street Artist Mohammed Ali. On stage before breaking the fast, Ali created a painting inspired by the current situation within the middle east, paired with drone footage of ruined cities projected on a screen. The painting was auctioned with the money raised supporting the appeal.

Our annual Soul City Arts Iftar returns, the spirit of community and togetherness at the core of our Iftar we welcomed guests of all background to break together. Enjoying good food, art, prayer and reflection inside of our Birmingham warehouse.

A special Iftar menu was created by Chef Munayam Khan of Rajamonkey, with proceeds from the ticket also contributing towards the cause of vital relief for the people of Gaza.
