Non-Theists Celebrate Art & Environment

Widely-Acclaimed Non-Religious Artist Featured at Prestigious Collection in Liverpool

Topping off an impressive profile of displayed art works, Liverpool (UK)-based non-religious artist Peter Corbett has been given the opportunity to display his works at the Victoria Gallery & Museum at The University of Liverpool. Corbett trained with the renowned British artist Maurice Cockrill, and obtained honors degrees in fine arts in nearby Manchester. Corbett’s artistic subjects often depict his interest in science, arts, philosophy, and Gamlan music. Selections from Corbett’s new book of poetry and other philosophical writings will complement Corbett’s visual art, and will be on display until October 31, 2015.

Making a “World” Of Difference with Environmental Ethics

At a recent event with some people in the Washington, DC CoR, we met up with Humanist Chaplain, Rabbi Binyamin Biber and his wife, Catherine Sheehy. We discussed how groups such as Balance the World Foundation in Las Vegas CoR are trying to raise environmental ethics practices in local businesses. Other CoRs are also making a positive impact by sponsoring collections of recyclable materials. Here are places that people have suggested that are free to use their recycling facilities:
