Interfaith Exchanges is club that aims to foster understanding, sharing and interaction between people from different faiths and beliefs. Through roundtable discussions, acknowledging special holy days, sharing food and forging friendships, we all can learn from one another. All faiths and beliefs have ideas, values and traditions that need to be shared and celebrated in a safe and comfortable environment! This interaction will enable us to recognise each other’s needs, respect one another, break stereotypes and build a university atmosphere that is open and respectful to people from all walks of life. So if you want to bring ideas, values and stories to the table, learn and share experiences from others and learn more about people from different faiths and beliefs, become a member or join the committee!
