This Community Arts Project will explore the variety of values, beliefs and spiritual life in the Marrickville Local Government Area. It is sponsored by The Marrickville Multifaith Roundtable in conjunction with Marrickville Council. We will invite local residents, community groups, schools and artists to create art works that engage the wider community in a conversation to promote mutual understanding and respect.
The Community Arts Project will enable people of all faiths and value systems to express their hopes, concerns and interests through the imagination. The arts can play an important role in assisting people who come from different perspectives to engage in a conversation that is both illuminating and provocative. We hope people using their artistic imagination will be both inspired and challenged through the medium of drawings, paintings, photography, sculpture and poetry.
This is a co-operative project of the local faith bodies that form the Marrickville Multifaith Roundtable (Anglican, Catholic, Hindu, Muslim and Uniting); Marrickville Council and the Blake Society that supports the Engage Program.
