Since moving to Vancouver from Johannesburg last year Aslam Bulbulia has immersed himself in a multitude of civic and community engagement projects in the Lower Mainland. He is a RADIUS Fellow, a member of CityHive's 30Network and is currently leading community engagement initiatives at SFU's Centre for Comparative Muslim Studies.
Aslam holds a BA in Political Science and Philosophy from the University of Witwatersrand and is working towards a Master's Degree in Development Planning. Aslam also recently completed the Certificate in Dialogue and Civic Engagement at Simon Fraser University.
His community engagement projects include founding a Muslim Urbanists network in Johannesburg; co-producing a Palestinian-solidarity album; a traditional art workshop that explores Arabic Calligraphy and Islamic Geometric Design, and hosting a series of community conversations on what it means to be Muslim in the Lower Mainland.
