Mission Statement

Arakan Creative is a Social Enterprise established in 2009 by actor/writer Conor Ibrahiem. It is a testament to his dream; to combine his passion for the arts with his faith to improve the British, South Asian and Muslim communites to which he belongs.

Through theatre our primary aim is to breathe new life into the rich and diverse Islamic stories, both historical and contemporary. Its history is bursting with narratives that highlight good practice, moral values and positive role models.

In addition, we specialise in addressing certain cultural issues within the South-Asian community that damage prosperity. We also seek to look at wider social ills that affect us all, from the likes of health, community cohesion or poverty. Education is another area of Arakan’s reach, delivering creatively on the curriculum through theatre and bespoke workshops.

We welcome everybody to come along and enjoy theatre as a place to laugh and learn, in a family-friendly environment. Our work strives to foster a better relationship between us and the wider world, our neighbours and our inner world.

And the journey we take is just as important as the end goal - i.e. we don't walk on the wrong path for the right outcome. We operate ethically and to the permissable, in other words, Halal.
