Religious beliefs

12 September – 16 October 2017

Faber hosts for a month professionals, researchers and artists whose work builds on religion and believes, either at the theoretical, empirical or artistic level.

What is the role of religions in the XXI century? How do religious beliefs affect our society? What is the relationship between religion and politics? These questions and many others, related to power, education, history, morals or ethics will be part of the fourth stay at the Faber Residency. We want to carry out a rigorous treatment of religious beliefs, discussing various forms of relationship that we establish with the current religions in our cities and create a work environment based on dialogue and exchange of experiences.

That is why we are looking for candidates interested in developing their project in Olot, from 12 September to 9 October.

Who can come? Faber is an interdisciplinary residency. Any professional, researcher, artist or writer who has a project related to religion and believes that s/he can offer some activities. These activities (lectures, workshops, round tables, seminars, working groups) may be addressed to specialists, but also to general public and students of colleges and schools.

To assess the projects, we will take into account the candidate’s curriculum, the work project, the quality of the proposed activities and flexibility to adapt to different audiences.
