Received this in the mail the other day:
On behalf of Crescent Collective I would like to invite you to "Creativity & The Spiritual Path: KL" which is hosted by Brother Peter Gould, an Australian Muslim graphic designer, and Sister Khadija O'Connell, an American event decor designer. This is the first time CSP is held in Kuala Lumpur, alhamdulillah.
So you might be asking what is CSP and why is it important? It is a gathering of conversations. The intention is to facilitate dialogue on topics relevant to Artists, Designers, Musicians, Directors, Writers, Thinkers and Creative types linked by an interest in Spirituality and Islam.
The platform is an ongoing series of events designed to nurture and cultivate creativity, both individually and collectively and to learn, share & connect. Previously, CSP has taken place in America, Canada and Australia. Some of the most prominent Muslim scholars and artists have participated as speakers and attendees e.g. Sami Yusuf, Imam Zaid Shakir (Zaytuna College)
Being creative is part of being human. And everyone loves to be artistic. I know many of you are into blogging, music, fashion, and design in general. So why not find out ways to be Islamically creative? After all life is about pleasing Allah swt and CSP is a great opportunity to meet some of the top Muslim minds in the field of creativity. - Sha Elaiza
