Meet Your Muslim Neighbours (MYMN) is an established group of volunteers, adult and children of Muslim faith. They run this initiative to help break down barriers and build bridges for all communities. World Museum’s inaugural Meet Your Muslim Neighbour event in June 2012 attracted almost 700 visitors. Brimming with family friendly activity, the day included henna hand painting, Arabic art writing, samosa tasting and a show-and-tell on cultural artefacts and objects. Following the success of Meet Your Muslim Neighbour Day at World Museum, there are now plans to roll out the same event across all National Museums Liverpool’s venues, starting with Museum of Liverpool tomorrow (Saturday 20 October 2012). Drop in any time 11am-4pm - see the website for further details.
