Since its formation in 2011, the CIC has built up a large, robust and diverse network of partnerships with Central Indiana congregations, colleges and universities, and civic and community organizations. One of its most important assets in fulfilling this mission is CIC’s diverse and active board, consisting of forty religious and community leaders.
Every year CIC organizes the Indy Festival of Faiths, the Midwest’s largest one-day celebrations of religious diversity and vitality. Over its five years, the Festival has steadily grown in the number of organizations participating, the number of people in the audience, and the diversity of activities offered.
The theme of 2018’s Festival of Faiths is “Compassion though Action.” It happens Sunday, October 14, from 1:00-5:00 pm; a Community Youth Forum will take place inside the Indiana War Memorial from 11:00 am – 12:30 pm.
