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 2024 Multifaith Calendar is:
Reclaiming Our Happiness.
Over the course of the past few years we have endured a series of unprecedented global urgencies, and many of us now feel a burning passion - whether newfound or reinvigorated - to help affect
positive change on a wide scale. And yet, before we can effectively tackle the many issues of the day, we have a responsibility to check in with ourselves and seek answers to some seemingly
simple, yet fundamentally important questions. Perhaps most importantly of all, "What makes us happy?"
Whether it's gazing up a beautiful sunset on a warm summer evening, welcoming a newborn child into the world, or the excitement of exploring a new place, everyone can fondly recall a moment in which they felt truly happy. But how, after having endured the hardships of the last few years, can we bring ourselves to not only inhabit, but ultimately embody that feeling? To elevate ourselves to a place where we can inspire feelings of joy in others, and move forward with assurance that we're ready and able to affect positive the change we so sorely need.
Look inside and see what will make us smile once again and continue to build hope for the future. We hope this gives you an idea of the fertile space we hope to explore in the 2024 Multifaith
Calendar - Reclaiming Our Happiness. Enjoy and share with your friends, family and co-workers!
Beyond its value as 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 Multifaith Calendar Production Team ultimately identifies approximately 25 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.

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 upcoming 2025 edition is:
Pathways to Peace
Deadline to Submit: 31 January 2024
As multiple conflicts rage across the world, it can be easy to give in to feelings of hopelessness about humanity's prospects for a peaceful and prosperous future. The dream of true and
lasting world peace is universal, yet elusive. What will it take for us to finally set aside our petty differences and historical grievances to find a common vision for humanity? Does peace
simply entail the absence of war, or does it incorporate freedom from all forms of injustice and oppression?
Many philosophers and spiritual leaders have posited that we cannot achieve global peace and unity until we realize peace within ourselves – an intriguing perspective inviting new and creative
interpretations. Perhaps, peace need not be more complicated or grandiose than a walk amongst the wildflowers or a late-summer sunrise.
In the 2025 Multifaith Calendar, Pathways to Peace, we invite artists to reflect deeply on these perennial questions and to channel their visions of peace into artwork that soothes
the spirit, uplifts the soul, inspires others to action, and ultimately offers solace to a divided world.
We hope this gives you an idea of the fertile space we hope to explore in the 2025 Multifaith Calendar: Pathways to Peace. We look forward to your submissions!
