The dates of Scottish Interfaith Week 2017 are 12th - 19th November. The theme will be 'Creativity and the Arts'. Religion has been an inspiration for the expression of beauty, witnessed in creative activities such as architecture, art, music and dance. This year gives an opportunity to celebrate the diverse expressions of this creative activity in different religions and cultures.
We have a brand new Scottish Interfaith Week website which will have the programme of events for the week, resources for planning events, flyers and posters and news stories about the week. If you are planning an event please upload it at the new site: scottishinterfaithweek.org

Established by Interfaith Scotland in 2004, Scottish Interfaith Week provides an opportunity for individuals, local interfaith groups and faith communities across the country to celebrate Scotland's religious diversity and to plan events that bring local people together to promote dialogue, understanding and co-operation between Scotland's diverse religious communities.
According to First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, "Scotland is a modern multi-faith and multi-cultural country where all people can live together in harmony, and where people of all faiths and ethnic backgrounds can follow their religion or belief and achieve their potential. These events are tremendously important in bringing together different communities united in a common purpose. We all want to live in a Scotland where mutual trust, respect and understanding form the basis for our lives and our relationships with others. I know that these basic principles will underpin the various events being held up and down the country during interfaith week”.
