Cambridge City Council
Islam: Misconceptions and Realities
The Cambridge City Council and the Community Cohesion and Racial Harassment Service asked the Woolf Institute to deliver a course that would look at misconceptions around Islam. The aim of the course was to educate Cambridge residents about Islam and to begin to remove some of the stereotypes that were attached to the Islamic faith, many of which are perpetuated by the media.
The course was delivered on several occasions, which were all well attended. The audience varied from statutory agencies like Police and Local Government officers to community leaders and students.
The feedback received was excellent:
- "This was one of the best courses that I have been on this year"
- "Very interesting and really informative"
- "We were very pleased with the course and felt that our objectives were met with a successful outcome"
