Religion in the City

Body and Religion

Over the course of two days, the doors of Flagey will be open for everyone to nurture their thoughts and opinions. For the second edition of ‘Religion in the City’, the focus will be on the present challenges surrounding the bond between body and religion. With debates, conferences, concerts, interactive workshops, artistic performances, a photo exhibition and film, the programme is bursting with activities. During the festival, the stage will be taken exclusively by female speakers, as a reaction to the lack of female voices in a discussion that affects them the most. Female academics and artists – both religious and atheistic – will lead the debate over the two days of the festival, all sharing their vision of body and religion.

With a.o. Christiane Taubira, Karen Armstrong, Inna Shevchenko, Axelle Red, Petra De Sutter, Alicja Gescinska, Viviane De Muynck.
