On September 29, 2016, Dr. Michael Hadley, a multidisciplinary scholar and Associate Fellow with the Centre for Studies in Religion and Society at UVic, launched the newVictoria Multifaith SocietyLunch & Learn series of talks about Islam, the Unitarian Church, Christianity, and the Bahá’i faith, respectively, to be held every Thursday at noon throughout October, in the Chapter Room at Christ Church Cathedral, 930 Burdett Avenue.
These will be followed by a second series of faiths, planned to begin in February 2017. In all, the faith traditions that we anticipate being represented include Muslim, Christian, Jewish, Hindu, Bahá’í, Unitarian, First Nations, Buddhist and Sikh.
The purpose of this series is to present introductory information about faith communities that exist in the Victoria region and to present this in an abbreviated way to people who may live or work in the downtown area, both to those of faith or of no faith

This course is suitable for photographers
of all interests and skill levels, whether utilizing a smartphone, a state-of-the-art DSLR or a traditional film-based camera.
Over the six sessions
we will explore two basic facets of picture taking: enhancing your
observational skills and integrating core principles of composition while
capturing your image.
The goal is to help you make both increasingly intuitive
and less overtly conscious choices. We
will also examine why outsiders often recognize and document their new
environment more effectively than their home-bred counterparts. Are we lulled
into complacency by the “normalness” of our day-to-day surroundings? How do we
as photographers attune our senses as well as make the crucial differentiation
between normal and mundane? The key
learning objective is to see your surroundings in a new light, and in doing so,
you may also realize potential projects in your midst.
6 sessions on Thursdays
Location: Clearihue Building, University of Victoria
