Call for submissions: Bicentenary issue

The Winter 2018 issue of Bahá’í Canada magazine will be devoted to the upcoming bicentenary, which will celebrate the birth of Bahá’u’lláh and the birth of the Báb. It will focus on cultural and artistic expressions in honour of these historic occasions, as well as reports on the activities that took place across the country.

In relation to the latter, the Bahá’í Canada committee is seeking reports and reflections, along with relevant photographs, that describe the myriad ways that institutions, communities and individuals celebrated these occasions and reached out to “the widest possible cross-section of society and to all those with whom they share a connection.”[1] The deadline for these submissions is 17 November 2017.

It is hoped that this issue of Bahá’í Canada will befittingly mark these Festivals and speak to “the timeless splendour of those divine Figures Who set in motion an irresistible process of individual and social change.”[2]
