This fall symposium explores understandings of the earth. It provides counter-narratives to dominant worldviews based on consumption. It brings together cross-cultural spiritual discussion, musical and dance performance and visual art. All of these express human relationships with the natural world, spiritual relations among beings, and cultural concepts of harmony and balance.

Sunday, Oct. 22, 2-6 p.m.
Mitchell Auditorium, The College of St. Scholastica
Free and open to the public


The visual art contributed to this event comes to us from an open call for submissions by artists in our community and region who are members of the cultural and spiritual communities above. The music and dance performance arises out of cross-cultural collaborations of local artists. Art illuminates, challenges, inspires, and sustains us, expressing emotion, complexity and relationship.

The Oreck-Alpern Interreligious Forum promotes respect, understanding, and peace among the diverse spiritual communities of our region through sustained cross-cultural dialogue, shared study, and collaborative projects and events. Our work represents an ongoing, growing, and deepening 12-year set of relationships and partnerships among in our region.
