Indianapolis Festival of Faiths 2015

Festival of Faiths

(August 30, 2015)  As August drew to a close, Darfur Women Network, Inc. joined hundreds of Hoosiers for the Indy Festival of Faiths to celebrate religious, philosophical and cultural diversity in the heart of Indianapolis. Since 2013, the Center for Interfaith Cooperation has brought together organizations from various spiritual backgrounds in order to raise awareness about different faiths, philosophies and cultures prevalent in Indiana. Those in attendance were able to witness sacred performances from Buddhist, Muslim, Judaic-Klezmer, Sikh, Mormon, Hindu, and Christian traditions out on the Veterans Memorial Plaza. Inside the War Memorial itself, visitors were able to view exhibits highlighting the interfaith efforts of the Center for Interfaith Cooperation, as well as attend round table discussions concerning issues of leadership, faith-based advocacy, religious conflict, arts performance, and environmental intervention. DWN would like to thank all those who came out in support of, not only us, but the other organizations in attendance. We would like to give special thanks to the Center for Interfaith Cooperation for sponsoring DWN and hosting this amazing event; to Megan and Caroline, our enthusiastic volunteers from Butler University, Kathryn Ballard our primary designer and project manager for creative, social media and marketing; our amazing volunteers who are the engine of DWN; Hikam Mohamed, a student from the Islamic School of Knowledge; and Renee, the Fitness and Nutrition Coordinator from the Immigrant Welcome Center. We look forward to attending the 2016 Indy Festival of Faiths!
