The board of directors of the Quilt of Belonging is pleased to announce the Quilt has been selected as a special exhibit at the 2018 Parliament of the World’s Religions (PoWR) conference, November 1-7, in Toronto, Ontario. Their theme—The Promise of Inclusion, Power of Love—is a perfect complement for the Quilt’s message of belonging and a place for all.
PoWR is a gathering of over ten thousand delegates from around the globe who represent the world’s many belief systems. Among the conference’s key programming are Indigenous Peoples and Sacred Spaces components. “Quilt of Belonging worked hard to ensure that Canada’s indigenous peoples were strongly represented in the Quilt,” says artist and executive director Esther Bryan. “Their strong presence at PoWR was a factor in our decision to participate.”
