Who’ll be at the Indy Festival of Faiths? Spirit & Place
Here’s what Spirit & Place says about itself:
Spirit & Place opens minds, touches hearts, builds bridges and helps citizens move forward in new ways individually and collectively. It’s all in our name: Spirit & Place. Through growth of the human spirit, Central Indiana becomes a better place.
Winner of the NUVO Cultural Vision Award and the Indiana Achievement Award, the Spirit & Place Festival reaches 20,000 people annually through dozens of “never-seen-before” programs. Artists and authors, entrepreneurs and neighborhood organizers, storytellers and scholars come together with singles and couples, families and friends in a true community conversation. Think: TED lecture, but interactive and on steroids.http://spiritandplace.org/
Our mission is to be a catalyst for civic engagement through creative collaborations among the arts, humanities, and religion. Through the arts, the festival uses the language of metaphor to explore sometimes difficult ideas. Through the humanities, the festival illuminates the distinct and common narratives of the human condition. Through religion, the festival embraces the values of compassion, fairness, hospitality, and service that fuel our life in community.
This year’s Spirit & Place Festival is November 1-10. Stop by the Spirit & Place table at the Indy Festival of Faiths and pick up a copy of the schedule.
The Center for Interfaith Cooperation is excited to be part of Spirit & Place again this year with a discussion and film about the revolutionary possibilities opened by the 20th-century theologian Howard Thurman on Wednesday, November 6.
