Here at the Center for Interfaith Relations, we’ve undertaken a job that combines archaeology, oral history and elbow grease. That’s right: elbow grease.
Since the Center’s offices moved to its present location at 415 W. Muhammad Ali Blvd. in 2004, minimal organizing and archiving has been done in the storage space. Perhaps the delay in dusting off the storage closet is because CIR does so much with a lean staff; sometimes taking a back seat to producing results that the community sees. As we look toward 2015, which will mark the 20th anniversary of the Festival of Faiths – that’s a lot of history tucked away!
