Eric Salitsky, “Exploring the Global Phenomenon of Multifaith Spaces” – $7,500 Award

"Eric Salitsky will travel to cities in North America and Europe to document the design and history of multifaith worship spaces. To Salitsky, multifaith spaces can potentially serve as living rebuttals to tribalism and divisiveness, showing how people of diverse backgrounds and beliefs can successfully worship in the same space without conflict. Salitsky will visit airports, hospitals, universities, and other public institutions in New York, Boston, London, Manchester, Zurich, and Berlin to investigate how people of different faiths share sacred space. Through his travels, Salitsky will discover exemplary spaces that are both functional and inspiring."
