Story Gathering Initiative

IRI at Parliament of the World’s Religions

The InterReligious Institute partnered with the 2018 Parliament of the World’s Religions on November 1-7, 2018 in Toronto teaching classes, cohorts and interviewing attendees in an archival story-gathering project leading to a future podcast and creative projects.

Storytelling Project

We met with and listened to almost 100 people from all over the world at Parliament discuss their faith and the role of religion in the world. We are continuing to meet with different faith based and social justice organizations  including refugee and immigrant communities to hear their stories in hopes of gaining inspiration for several upcoming creative projects. Through this artistic initiative, we hope to reshape the story being told.
