City of Surrey recognizes Surrey Muse Coordinator & Cofounder for excellence in Literary Arts

Fauzia Rafique, the coordinator and a cofounder of Surrey Muse Arts Society (SMAS), has received the City of Surrey’s Arts & Heritage Literary Arts Award in recognition of her work in the areas of creative writing and arts organizing. View the document containing the following information, and a complete list of award recipients. CivicDistinctionAwardRecipients.pdf

Fauzia’s statement

‘It is an honour for me to be selected for the City of Surrey’s Arts & Heritage Literary Arts Award.

‘Working for Surrey Muse Arts Society, a non-profit mandated to encourage inclusivity, representation, voice and equality in the arts community, forms a direct organic link to my writing practice as my novels and poems explore similar themes. It works well together, my creative writing process is more instinctive while organizing efforts use intellectual and cerebral energy.

‘I receive this award on behalf of over 300 authors and artists who have graced us since November 2011; Literary Advisers Joanne Arnott, Manolis Aligizakis, Nefertiti SheLa Morrison; Volunteers Helga Parekh, David Macilwain, and, of course, Surrey Muse co-Founders and Directors Mariam Zohra D, Sana Janjua, Randeep Purewall, and myself.

‘Our gratitude to Susan Crean and Jordan Strom for their ongoing support, and, to our peers at Surrey Libraries, Surrey Art Gallery and the City’s Cultural Grants section.’

Surrey Muse Arts Society (SMAS) congratulates all award recipients.


We are mentioned 41 minutes into it.
