Intersection 2018

Intersection 2018

The 2018 Spirit & Place Festival celebrates, explores, challenges and reflects on the meaning behind “intersection” in its 23rd year. The Spirit & Place Festival is a collaborative festival that uses the arts, religion and humanities as a tool for shaping individual and community life through 10 days of events designed with community partners, individuals and communities.

During the selection process this year, event submissions that exemplified key traits of the Spirit & Place Festival were nominated for an “Award of Awesomeness.” The winning event will receive a $1,000 award at the end of the festival.
