UNRAVELED: Our Unraveled Traveling Art Exhibit
will continue its journey across the country in 2015.
We have a limited number of hosting opportunities still available for 2015, so get in touch if you're interested
in having your college, university, high school,
community group, or organization host the exhibit!
TRAININGS / PRESENTATIONS / CONSULTATION:
In 2015 we will be offering face-to-face and online
learning opportunities for community members and educators. Our next live, online training in the spring
will explore using our popular Conversation Kits to
guide interfaith encounter and dialogue in your own setting. We're also building out trainings and webinars
to support educators using our RavelUnravel Curriculum. At the end of the month, we will be presenting at the 4th Annual Student Multifaith Leadership Conference, hosted at Occidental College, CA, and in February we'll be at Divinity and Diversity,
a regional interfaith conference in Columbus, OH.
RAVELUNRAVEL CURRICULUM: Speaking of Curriculum, keep your eyes peeled for upcoming
versions of our RavelUnravel Curriculum designed
for new audiences in 2015.
SMARTPHONE APP: Our Religious and Cultural Etiquette Smartphone App is currently in
development - stay tuned!
NATIONAL INTERFAITH DIALOGUE NIGHT: Later in the year, we'll be hosting our first National Night of Speed Dialogue and we'd love you to join us. We're in conversation with local and regional partners and supporters to help in organizing this national event. We'll be sharing more details in our newsletters and on social media in the coming months.
WEBSITE: Technology moves pretty quickly. It's been said that website years are like dog years. To increase the interactivity of our website for our users and to
make our website more easily accessible on mobile devices like smartphones and tablets, we will be
updating ProjectInterfaith.org in 2015. We'll keep you posted!

We invite you to join us as we continue to grow and evolve throughout 2015.
