Spirituality, Faith and Belief: Voyages of Discovery, with Jo Clifford, Rob Mackenzie and Medha Singh

Many of us experience moments or periods in our life as voyages of spiritual discovery and journeys inward, into our faith and beliefs. These personal pilgrimages often involve exploring our doubts and uncertainties, questions and curiosities as they arise from our experience of the world around us interacting with our understanding of religion. Often this is inspired and informed by a rich legacy of traditions of belief and their representation in the creative arts. 

This event will be hosted by Alison Jack and Samuel Tongue.
