The Crescent Moon:
The Asian Face of Islam in New Zealand

Ans Westra & Adrienne Jansen

Saturday 17 August – Sunday 8 September 2019

Developed by Asia New Zealand Foundation
Toured by Exhibition Services

In 2009, in a new post 9/11 era, photographer Ans Westra and writer Adrienne Jansen traveled through the country, catching up with Muslims in their everyday lives to produce a book designed to address misconceptions and stereotypes that had risen about Islam.

They met a very diverse group, ethnically, culturally, and theologically.

The Muslims whose thoughts and portraits appear in this exhibition represent many strands of Asian Islam experience that have converged in New Zealand.
