BRISBANE CITY COUNCIL, COMMUNITIES OF FAITH WALKING TOGETHER                Click on thumbnails in gallery below to view larger image

This exhibition reflects some of the beliefs, practices and rituals of a number of Brisbane’s diverse faith and spiritual communities. The intention is to increase understanding and respect between faith communities and foster awareness within the wider community.

Communities of Faith Walking Together evolved over several years. It began when faith communities expressed interest in an arts-based project to encourage inter-cultural understanding. Communities of Faith Walking Together utilised the combined efforts of nine religious / spiritual groups, their leaders and communities. Contributors included the Ba’hai, Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, Jewish, Muslim, Sikh and Taoist faiths and Aboriginal spirituality.

Representatives from each group made contributions to planning, writing, sourcing quotes from sacred texts and having their faith practices photographed.
