“I feel that it is important that we recognise Muslim Art at its best and by providing a service like Hidden Voice is a way to be taken seriously, a medium to voice our message and our thoughts, especially because I feel that Islamic Art isn’t taken so seriously in our culture, so therefore it’s important to be recognised and be heard.”

Hidden Voice Background:

Hidden Voice has been recognised and supported by "Hear My Voice" a company that encourages and helps young talented individuals with projects that are viable and have prospects to do well.

Hidden Voice began through a final year University Project in Media and Communications at the Birmingham City University.

Through considerable research  Nafisa Shaikh discovered  niche’ in the market for the lack of online websites for  Muslim artists to show case there work and felt that it was a growing issue that  needed to be tackled. As a final year project a group with different specialist roles was formed in order to fulfil this gap in the market.

The company includes four individuals with very different roles which are;
