       COMMUNITY PROGRAMMING                                   INITIATIVE

Arts & Faith St. Louis is proud to partner with local arts organizations to promote programs that provide further opportunities for interfaith engagement that leads to mutual understanding and respect of differing faith groups. We believe that the arts have a unique power to inspire thoughtful discussion among diverse audiences, to bring people together, and to bridge divides through shared experiences. 


We are asking arts organizations, individually or in collaboration with others, to develop and offer programs, opportunities or experiences that intentionally involve interfaith engagement in ways that promote mutual understanding and respect of differing faith groups.
