(Deadline is Oct. 8: See below for reservations) This is an extraordinary opportunity to hear the personal, behind-the-scenes stories of arts leaders who played key roles in the creation of two major Milwaukee arts facilities before transitioning into faith leadership positions. 

“Faith Connections”
The Interfaith Conference is launching a new annual event that will celebrate the dynamic roles that faith and values play in society while raising critically important funding. 

Premieres on Monday, Oct. 14
This year "Faith Connections" will be held at the Milwaukee Repertory TheaterPhilanthropists Donna & Tony Meyer ("Dr. Meyer") will be honored, and two faith leaders who significantly shaped the city’s artistic and cultural landscape will share their stories.

Our presenters are: 

  • Former Milwaukee Rep Managing Director Tonen (Sara) O’Connor, now resident priest emerita of the Milwaukee Zen Center.
  • Retired Milwaukee Art Museum Executive Director Muhammad Isa Sadlon (Christopher Goldsmith), now executive director/CEO emeritus of the Islamic Society of Milwaukee.

These two played major roles in the creation of the Rep’s Patty and Jay Baker Theater Complex and the Milwaukee Art Museum’s iconic Calatrava-designed addition before transitioning into faith leadership. They will speak about the influence of Buddhism and Islam on their lives and projects.

The Meyers will be presented with the Interfaith Conference’s inaugural Values in Action Award in recognition of their many and pivotal contributions to a strong and lively arts and cultural scene in Milwaukee.

This premiere event is a celebration of the arts and a fundraiser to provide critically needed support for the Interfaith Conference's efforts to counter hate, foster interreligious understanding, address social needs and build a better society.
