As part of our public engagement activities for 2023 we have worked with four diverse community groups to create a series of radio and sound works for broadcast on Radiophrenia.

‘Amina: the Muslim Women’s Resource Centre’ – Amina MWRC

Amina is Scotland’s resource centre for Muslim and BME women. Exploring their services through voice and sound, listeners are invited on an audio journey through the organisation’s work. From the perspectives of three teams – Helpline, Violence Against Women and Girls, and Employability, Adult Learning and Financial Inclusion – we hear how Amina supports and empowers vulnerable women, dismantles discriminatory sociopolitical structures, confronts cultural norms, helps to rewrite policy, challenges capitalist value systems, and amplifies the most marginalised of voices.

Recording, production and sound design by Riah Naief and Katie Revell, for Radiophrenia.

Amina – the Muslim Women’s Resource Centre empowers and supports Muslim, Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) women to create an inclusive Scotland in which they can contribute fully. We envision a world where Muslim and BME women are fulfilling their aspirations. Amina is an award-winning organisation, recognised for its pioneering and responsive approach to addressing key issues and needs of racially minoritised women and Muslim women.

The works created during these workshops will be broadcast as part of a special afternoon listening event from 3pm – 5.30pm on Thursday, 24th August.

Amina’s Helpline number is 0808 801 0301.
