Conference thematic statement
In these times of polarization there are borders and bridges of all kinds. How do we experience cultural, religious, socio-political and gender-based borders? What can we do to bridge the divides, academically and in our personal lives?
This conference invites you to an open-minded interaction with people who find inspiration from a diverse spectrum of sources.
The programme includes:
- a multi-religious opening,
- keynote speech by Dr Farid Esack,
- dialogue tables,
- a 'human library' (meeting people with stories of inspiration),
- musical intermezzi,
- time for interaction
- lunch with vegetarian option
We have a special programme for children aged 4 - 12 years
