Experiencing Ramadan Around the World

ITVS is excited to support the 30 Mosques documentary project as it continues to evolve, showing the diversity of Muslims all around the world during the month of Ramadan.

Today is day 28 of the “30 Days Ramadan” project produced by 30 Mosques. The project, which gives viewers a sense of what it is like to be a Muslim in America, was initiated in 2009 by comedian Aman Ali and photographer Bassam Tariq, who decided to blog about their Ramadan Mosque “hopping” throughout New York City.

Since then, the project has grown each year, adapting various approaches in order to highlight the unique perspective of various Muslim-Americans. This year, Ali and Tariq turned to social media to spread the message, inviting others to share, tweet, and Facebook their own Muslim-American culture in “30 Mosques in 30 Days”. Participants who use the hashtag #30Days have their Twitter and Instagram posts aggregated to the 30mosques.com site. Together, they make an interesting comparison of the many Ramadan observations around the world.
