2018 Theme: A Place at the Table

“For everyone born, a place at the table.” So begins a Christian hymn that celebrates an aspiration central to many spiritual traditions. We long for a world in which all people belong, a world in which all are treated with dignity, well fed and well loved.  It’s a vision embodied most tangibly in our life at tables — places where food and community are shared routinely.

Tables are places of nourishment, family and neighbourhood; places of negotiation, reconciliation and healing. Tables are places to mourn, to celebrate, to welcome and to farewell; they are venues for tradition, storytelling and remembering. Most of all, though, tables are places to belong.

In our 2018 Feast•Pray•Love art prize and exhibition, we invite artists to explore the theme ‘a place at the table,’ and to help us think more deeply about what it means to create and host such places in the world.

All are welcome at our table, Carol Bridges
