Faith and Peace: Perspectives from Three Religions

Audience: 
Anyone

Bradford Cathedral is hosting an exhibition called Faith and Peace. This inspiring exhibition presents perspectives on peace from three Abrahamic religions – Judaism, Christianity and Islam. The exhibition is also accompanied by artworks by groups of women in the Bradford area over the past 3 years. The Peace Museum have created the exhibition and led workshops with women who explored what the themes of faith and peace mean to them in their everyday lives and created artworks which capture some of their reflections.

This exhibition looks at the way in which the three faiths promote peace – in their teaching, and in the lives of their people. It tells stories of their peace-makers. It shows how each stresses hospitality and welcome for the stranger, including the stranger of other faiths.

Faith and Peace was a 3-year project sponsored by the Anglican Pacifist Fellowship and the exhibition panels are illustrated with images of artefacts in the collection of the Peace Museum in Bradford.

The exhibition is open every day during Bradford Cathedral's opening hours, plus there is a talk and open workshop on Thursday 12th September from 1-3pm (repeated at 6:45-8:15pm).

Workshops are open to all and free of charge. The talk and workshop will be led by Liz Firth and Shaeron Caton-Rose and will include a simple creative activity – no previous experience is necessary. All materials will be provided.
