Hardly a day goes by without mention of Islam. And yet, for most people, and in much of the world, Islam remains a little-known religion. Whether the issue is violence, terrorism, women’s rights or slavery, Muslims are today expected to provide answers and to justify what Islam is – or is not. But little opportunity exists, either in the media or in society as a whole, to describe Islam: precisely the question that Tariq Ramadan sets out to answer. He offers an introduction to Islam, to its spirituality, its principles, its rituals, its diversity and its evolution.
In conversation with Julian Baggini.

The Festival of Ideas endeavours to hold events in venues that are accessible to all. Watershed’s cinemas and event spaces are all located on the first floor which is accessible via the lift located in the main entrance foyer at Box Office. Once on the first floor there is level access to all areas. The venue has a hearing loop system. If you have specific access concerns it is advisable to contact the venue direct. Wheelchair users and visitors who require an assistant may bring a companion free of charge. Please contact Watershed Box Office (details above) to arrange this.
We sometimes film and photograph Festival of Ideas events. Please let us know if you do not wish to be filmed or photographed.
