Expressions of Muslim Women (EMW) is an Ottawa-based group of Muslim women dedicated to promoting the artistry of Muslim women in the National Capital Region.

EMW events set out to inspire women of all faith and cultural backgrounds by seeing Muslim women express themselves in a positive and constructive way within a comfortable environment.

The talent of local Muslim women is showcased through their visual artwork and their performing arts such as poetry, drama, music and song.

Since November 2008, EMW has organizedĀ a women-only show at the Centrepointe Studio Theatre where talented Muslim women performed to sold-out audiences.
