Wednesday Forum is a weekly discussion on religion-related ideas and practices organized by both the Center for Religious and Cross-cultural Studies (CRCS), the Graduate School of Universitas Gadjah Mada, and Indonesian Consortium for Religious Studies (ICRS), Yogyakarta. This forum is an academic space open for public, encouraged especially for our graduate students, faculty members, researches, Indonesian and overseas scholars.

The topics discussed include, but are not limited to, interfaith dialogue; conflict resolution and peace building; religious education; art and spirituality or mysticism; religion and pop culture; religious violence and radicalism; indigenous religions; religion and ecology; religion and politics; and philosophical ideas on religion.
The forum is attended by CRCS and ICRS graduate students and faculty members, visiting professors, activists, and students from other universities. Basically the forum is open for public.
