Opportunity for Visual Artists…

Each year, the Multifaith Action Society invites artists to submit works of art for publication in our forthcoming Multifaith Calendar.

The theme for our upcoming 2018 edition is:  The Power of Inspiration

for submissions:
31 January 2017

We believe this theme is open to a wide variety of interpretations and leaves open the possibility for a rich array of artistic submissions.

Click here for our 2018 MFC Call for Submission Flyer.

The Power of Inspiration...  Everyone wants to live an inspired life. A life moved by the spirit within, but what moves us differs from person to person. Inspiration can take the form of:  a beautiful sunset; a meal with friends; a neighbour’s kindness; or a parent’s unconditional love.

More information available here.

Best of luck and we look forward to all submissions!

“Love and Compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them, humanity cannot survive”

~ His Holiness the Dalai Lama


Join us for an afternoon of reflection and celebration as we explore the most powerful and life-affirming of human qualities: love and compassion. In a world where darkness and suffering seem so commonplace, let us gather together - regardless of age, faith, or background - to reaffirm our common humanity and chart a course toward a more peaceful and harmonious future. 


Light refreshments will be served. All are welcome.

Pre-registration is strongly encouraged. To pre-register, please complete and submit the following form.

Note: Please fill out the fields marked with an asterisk.

New 2017 Multifaith Calendar now available...

MAS is pleased and excited to announce the publication of the new 2017 Multifaith Calendar - Love and Compassion. 

Look around – what in this world could not benefit from a little more love and compassion? Think about your neighbourhood, office, classroom, city, country, world – everyone benefits from an outpouring of love and compassion. In Canada, where the Multifaith Action Society produces the Multifaith Calendar every year, we are celebrating our 150
th year (sesquicentennial anniversary) of confederation.

We believe in love and compassion as integral Canadian qualities and so we asked our artists to explore this theme.

MAS would like to extend a note of gratitude to all of the artists who submitted works for consideration for the 2017 MFC. We are extremely honoured to have the opportunity to view such high quality and compelling pieces. We hope you enjoy the results.
