Salaam Shalom was founded in 2006, based on the belief that greater understanding between people of different faiths and cultures results in better tolerance among communities.

Salaam Shalom brings together Muslims and Jews to collaborate through arts, media, and education. We aim to:

 

  • Build relationships and understanding across social divides in Bristol and beyond
  • Combat Islamophobia, anti-Semitism and all forms of prejudice and injustice within and between our communities
  • Facilitate empowering experiences for those who take part in Salaam Shalom’s projects
  • Support Muslim and Jewish artists in Bristol and beyond

About Us

Salaam Shalom has developed from an internet radio station to a project-based, cross-community organisation.

With a very small team of dedicated Trustees, Project Managers and Volunteers – backed by local, national and international funders – Salaam Shalom has achieved significant impact by bringing together local communities in Bristol and beyond.

Influencers

Frida and Saiqa - Khaas

A powerful collection of interviews with eight Muslim, one Sikh and four Jewish Influencers. They describe their upbringing and development of a social conscience; recognition of what their community lacked; community initiatives they founded and a future vision for their community and relationships between other Bristol communities.

Projects

Over the years, Salaam Shalom has developed projects in three main areas: Arts, Education and Media

From classroom activities based on identity for Primary and Secondary school children, to fine art exhibitions, theatre productions, interviews with local Muslim and Jewish ‘influencers’, visits to world historic sites, blogs, podcasts and videos, Salaam Shalom has worked with individuals and communities to find innovative ways to encourage dialogue.

Get Involved

Salaam Shalom is constantly looking for new ideas, volunteers, influencers, Trustees and, of course, funders to keep the organisation moving forward.

A key principle of dialogue is listening more than speaking, so we are eager to hear from anyone that shares our desire to strengthen communities and encourage positive growth and change in the UK.
