Encountering Prophet Muhammad (pbh)

Creativity Competition on



Need to Encourage Islamic Art in Germany

The Project

“Creativity Competition”

Success Factors


For years things have hardly changed


For years things have hardly changed…

  • Muslims came to Germany as immigrants …

    • Since their arrival as immigrants during the 60’s and 70’s Muslims in Germany have almost exclusively been stuck working to provide their families with a basic living standard.

    • Now circumstances force them to react, defending their religion and beliefs and cope with being hardly recognized as part of German society.

    • Still, having become German Muslims after all this time, they aspire to their rightful place within German society.

… and have mentally just arrived.

Now it is time for creativity


…now it is time for creativity

  • Time has come for Muslims in Germany to be part of their new home’s cultural life

    • Due to their bicultural biographies and ambivalent mental world there is vast potential among Muslims in Germany for creative work and stories to tell

    • Artistic expression helps the Muslim community to cope with social, economic, cultural, and emotional problems …

    • … and makes them better understood by the other groups of the society.

Arts can impact a genuine contribution to building bridges and permanently overcoming cultural alienation.

To initiate and encourage artistic work by a competition in creativity

The Project

To initiate and encourage artistic work by a competition in creativity …

  • Artistic activity among German Muslims has just begun to make first steps

    … and needs encouragement and coaching.

  • German Muslims’ intellectual work has been preoccupied with political and theological topics for many years

    … a competition in creativity will promote artistic awareness and encourage talents.

Creative arts have always needed patrons – among German Muslims today they need encouragement and coaching.

With prophet muhammad pbh as first topic

The Project

… with Prophet Muhammad (pbh) as first topic

  • Prophet Muhammad has always been subject of Muslim lyrics and music

  • The Prophet is an essential part of own identity, culture, and emotions

  • … and stands for misunderstandings and controversial concepts between Muslims and non-Muslims

The topic is apt to inspire genuine and authentic artistic work
