Each year, the Multifaith Action Society invites visual artists to submit works of art for consideration in its
upcoming Multifaith Calendar.
The theme for our 2021 edition is: Living Legacies
Deadline to Submit: 31 January 2020
What do we want to leave our children? Do we want to leave polluted air, ravaged forests, dying oceans and polluted garbage dumps? Or do we want to clean up our act and create natural beauty and wonder in every landscape.
Do we want to leave a world in conflict or a world that values peace, co-operation, and respect? How do we create living legacies for our children, friends, neighbours to inherit?
Our planet is our most precious resource. It sustains us, supports us, and is our home. We need to love our home planet and honour one another so we can live happy, meaningful,
fulfilled lives. Let’s think about and imagine the living legacies we could leave - so our children can walk freely in nature, grow food in their own back yards, swim in pristine
oceans, and foster enduring respect and love for our communities as well as each other no matter the culture or creed and ensure that we extend dignity and respect for all.

Nearly 500 different holidays and religious festivals from 14 world religions, as well as select cultural events, public holidays and United Nations observances, are detailed in the Calendar. By helping to raise awareness of these observances, as well as their historical origins and any spiritual precepts that maybe associated with them, the Multifaith Calendar continues to assist and facilitate cross-cultural understanding, provide a basis for dialogue, discussion and community involvement / engagement, and foster environments of mutual respect, awareness and understanding across communities and in workplaces as well as both private and public institutions across North America and Internationally.
The theme for the new 2020
Multifaith Calendar is:
Reimagining Peace and Harmony.
Who does not want world peace and harmony in their lives? It is an almost universal desire. But today, the world seems to be moving away from this ideal.
What do you think peace looks like? Is it different than harmony? We all have moments of peace. We can in fact take a snap shot of the moment when we felt at peace, but then it seems that the moment moves away from us.
Harmony is a little more fluid. It is not just one thing or one moment. Harmony is often created when many notes or many things come together in a new way and create a feeling.
The 2020 Multifaith Calendar offers you the opportunity to reflect on reimagining these two precious commodities in today’s world. Enjoy!
Far from being just an informational resource, the Multifaith Calendar also provides a platform for emerging visual artists to have their work exhibited in print. Each year, hundreds of artists from around the globe respond to a Call for Submissions from mid-October to the end of January each year (the overarching artistic theme of the Calendar changes annually), and our MFC Production Team ultimately identifies approximately 28 original works of art for publication. Artists whose work is included are awarded honorariums and given full credit, and in this way the Calendar helps to increase the public exposure, marketability and livelihoods of artists as well.
