The Latin revolutio and evolutio are separated by a single letter. The first means "a turn around," implying swift or abrupt transition. The second means an "unrolling," or "opening," suggesting gradual transformation or blooming. Regardless, it’s all about change!

What do history, geography, art, science, astronomy, sociology, religion, political science, and culture teach us about both revolution and evolution? What new ways of being, seeing, and doing are blooming and evolving around the world? What contemporary issues—in our backyard and elsewhere—are calling out for revolution?

The 2019 Spirit and Place Festival celebrates, explores, challenges, and provides time for reflection on the theme of R/EVOLUTION! In its 24th year, the festival continues to highlight the power of collaboration through independently organized events that use the arts, religion, and/or humanities as tools for shaping individual and community life. The festival is 10 days long and event partners, formats, and locations change with each offering.
