Parliament Flickr Account

The Council is happy to announce that we have created a Flickr account to make our archived photographic records available to the public.  You may recognize many of these images from our website.  The archive includes sets from all of the Parliaments of Religions (including 1893), as well as Pre-Parliament Events and several archives on Melbourne.  The view the photo archive, click here!

A World of Possibilities

The Parliament of Religions is an intentionally international event. Including Melbourne 2009, the event will have been hosted on four continents, and the Parliament brings together religious adherents from dozens of different faith traditions.  It makes sense that our registrants would be equally diverse.

The registration analysis isn’t complete, but we have already confirmed attendance from over sixty different nations.  From Malaysia to Canada, from Zimbabwe to Iran, from Nepal to Guatemala and of course Australia, the Parliament has found its way across the breadth and width of the world.  This is seen in a variety of programming, from our many Pre-Parliament Events to the Partner Cities Network.

As our registration increases, the world grows closer and closer.

The world will come together in Melbourne this December.

We hope to see you there!
