Students Working on the Project
Brandon University students helped with fundraising, and designed and researched the labyrinth. Thanks to the students for their hard work on the project. This Labyrinth showcases the talent and excellence of all of the students in the Department of Religion at Brandon University, who created a unique Labyrinth that illustrates the shared ideals and symbols of peace and harmony.
In October, the Department of Religion at Brandon University will be publishing pamphlets, written by Angela Conrad, on the histories of religious groups in Brandon. Angela has been the chief student researcher and fundraiser on the Labyrinth of Peace project. These books will be sold in the Riverbank Discovery Centre, and at the Brandon University Campus Bookstore. An on-line copy may also be viewed on the Department of Religion Web Site.
Student roles in the project

Heather Dixon, Christy Henry and Joseph Trivers came up with the early design of the labyrinth. Russ Maloney was responsible for the final design for the labyrinth.
