Celebrating Our Faiths at City Hall

The Celebrating Our Faiths program celebrates the incredible diversity of faith traditions within Edmonton. Each month a different faith launches an educational event to showcase their faith tradition. A permanent exhibit in City Hall's City Room changes to provide an opportunity for Edmontonians to learn about each of these faiths.

The Celebrating Our Faiths display is located on the main floor of City Hall.

Current Displays

A multi-faith display highlighting the faith groups represented by the Edmonton Interfaith Centre for Education and Action. The display celebrates World Interfaith Harmony Week which is based on a United Nations Resolution for a worldwide week of interfaith harmony. The World Interfaith Harmony Week falls on the first full week of February each year.

The "Celebrating Our Faiths" program is a joint program between the Edmonton Interfaith Centre for Education and Action and the City of Edmonton. This partnership began in 2006.

CEAR: City of Edmonton Augmented Reality App

Thanks to our interfaith partners and a talented group of students from NAIT’s Digital Media and IT Departments, an app has been created that lets users experience a variety of faith celebrations through an augmented reality experience. In celebration of Christmas, the first of these experiences is a virtual Nativity scene.

Accessing the App

The app is accessible on all Android and Apple platforms.

Google Play

Apple App Store

Tips and Tricks

  • App works best in bright lighting. Avoid projecting onto carpet or glossy surfaces.
  • The AR code can be scanned through a physical copy or from a digital screen
  • When the app tells you to aim the camera, a black object will be displayed which will be where the Nativity Scene will appear once you tap "deploy"
  • Use your fingers to zoom in/out, which can make the scene bigger or smaller
  • Using your device, you can "walk" into the scene itself. Interact with the individuals and animals by tapping on them.

AR Code

The AR code is required to make the app work. Without it, the app is not functional.
