What role can the sound arts (such as music), visual arts and literary arts play in constructing knowledge of a religion such as Islam? How can the arts become pedagogical tools for effectively addressing gaps in knowledge and empathy between Muslims and non-Muslims? If unaddressed these gaps can become the root causes of stereotyping, prejudice and fear and undermine the proper functioning of democracies as well as relationships between nations and peoples.
