The Oxford Foundation in partnership with The Edward Cadbury Centre for the Public Understanding of Religion at the University of Birmingham, is hosting a gathering entitled, United for Peace: Unity through Poetry. Leading luminaries from across the faith, cultural, and non-faith traditions will read, chant and sing beautiful poetry that will speak across different cultures and faiths affirming the universal message of peace, love, wisdom, unity and harmony. The evening will incorporate poetry interspersed with silent reflection and music that will celebrate and affirm these shared values. United for Peace is a national initiative by The Oxford Foundation that draws United Kingdom’s diverse communities together to affirm the values that unite us. The values of respect, love, peace, compassion and understanding as opposed to the narratives that extremists advocate of ugliness, division, hatred, and violence. https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/united-for-peace-unity-through-poetry-tickets-31347434019
