Multi-Faith Centre celebrates 10 years

The Multi-Faith Centre at Griffith University’s Nathan campus will celebrate its 10-year anniversary with a week-long series of events this week.

Centre Director Brian Adams (above) encouraged the community to participate in as many events as possible.

“The week will start with the opening of the Wollemi Indigenous Rock Art Exhibition on Monday, May 28,” he said.

“It is an expression of Aboriginal spirituality and will be open all week to visitors.”

Another signature event, the ‘Footprints for Peace’ walk will be held at Nathan campus on Tuesday, May 29.

“Walkers are invited to join us for festivities after the walk,” Mr Adams said.

“There will be a Sri Lankan lunch, music, cultural performances and various speakers.”

Mr Adams has been the Director of the Multi-Faith Centre for just under a year, but he has big plans for the coming decade.

“I want the Multi-Faith Centre to be a great contribution to students’ experience, so when they leave the university they are able to embrace cultural diversity,” he said.

The Multi-Faith Centre was opened in 2002 and follows the guidelines of religious tolerance and multiculturalism and aims to work towards a fair and just society.

An anniversary dinner, public lecture and interfaith forum will complete the week of celebrations.
