Explore the way religion and worldviews are interwoven into the life of Coventry, as people from long-standing and diverse communities share their stories and open the window into their world.
The event is one of six being staged in cities around England, intending to raise understanding between religious groups and the media. This is an opportunity for journalists, writers and media professionals, teachers, academics, faith groups, researchers, and religious and community leaders to network, enhancing religious literacy and local understanding. A selection of workshops will give local faith groups the chance to pitch their stories to journalists.
The event is hosted by the Religion Media Centre, an impartial and independent organisation aiming to increase further cohesion and understanding in society by helping the media report and understand religion and beliefs.
The event includes a discussion among a panel of local editors, a presentation about the faith covenant signed with the local government and workshops where a number of faith groups tell others their stories. This is one of a series of six events this autumn to improve communication, increase knowledge on both sides and create new relationships. You are warmly welcome to attend.
