We’re recruiting a PROJECT MANAGER for two NEW PROJECTS:

Over 2017, MUJU will deliver two new projects, Glass Half Full and filming of Comedy Sketches for online content. We are looking for a PROJECT MANAGER and PODCAST MAKER. Drop us a line now to find out more and see below…

MUJU’s GLASS HALF FULL 1 18th July – 6.30 -8.30pm (food provided)

MUJU’s GLASS HALF FULL 2 5th  Sept 6.30 -8.30pm (food provided)

Now more than ever, strengthening the representation of voices from disadvantaged communities is crucial. if we don’t tell our own stories, someone else will. MUJU’s GLASS HALF FULL will offer two workshops of provocations, conversations and networking for Muslims, Jews and other artists of faith/identity to meet and explore new relationships for developing creative work. Each workshop will be held at the Young Vic Theatre in London and artist, activist, faith leaders, dancers, comedians, professionals and thinkers of all disciplines are invited to join from MUJU’s network, the Genesis Network and further afield to explore meaningful spaces for collaboration. Over the two workshops we will share experiences and consider how we can make new work, ideas and positive impact possible with the resources and platforms we have available to us.

MUJU will support the development of one piece of new work thorough a small commissioning pot as part of the first Glass Half Full and commission a podcast across both GHF events to document the reflections and ideas that come from the workshops.

If you would like to attend please email 200 words outlining what you hope to get from GLASS HALF FULL please see the Up and Coming events page.

COMEDY SKETCHES

In 2015 MUJU produced, Come In! Sit Down!, an Arts Council funded musical sketch show which had a main house run at the Tricycle Theater and was described by The Spectator as, ‘A squirm-inducing night of sick skits at the Tricycle Theatre, which deserve a slot on TV’ and with ‘Spirited and charismatic performances’, by The Guardian. MUJU’s previous work, Extreme Prevention (2010), critically and comically explored the government’s ‘Prevent’ strategy whilst not shying away from exploring issues of extremism within our own communities. Described by Spoonfed as, ‘Fresh, clever and highly observant. MUJU’s chief success is highlighting new stereotypes ripe for gentle mocking’ and ‘humour, washed with intellect’ by Emel. Meanwhile 2012’s Flirting with Faith took a fun and thoughtful look at the dating game for young Muslims and Jews struggling to find a partner that ticks modern, religious and cultural boxes! MUJU would like to professionally film and edit 2-3 comedy sketches that can be shared widely online. Each sketch of 2-3min would be designed to entertain, but also encourage viewers to think more critically about themselves, their own beliefs, and challenge the all too common stereotypes about Muslims and Jews.
