Event description

Description

Perhaps the first truly contemporary Australian mosque, the Australian Islamic Centre in Newport stands to become a marker of a new, more tolerant and more understanding relationship with Islam in Australia.

Designed by Glenn Murcutt in collaboration with local Architect Hakan Elevli, the mosque simultaneously embraces Islamic traditions whilst seeking to reinterpret traditional design conventions in a very bold attempt to address its Australian context.

Join us on a tour for a unique opportunity to learn more about the mosque’s design and the formidable vision of it's enablers - the Newport Islamic Society.

Spaces are limited to allow for an intimate experience, please only sign up if you can attend to avoid other people missing out...

Don't forget this is a mosque - please dress modestly.
