I am participating in Reimagine End of Life, a community-wide exploration of death and celebration of life through creativity and conversation. Drawing on the arts, spirituality, healthcare, and design, we create weeklong series of events that break down taboos and bring diverse communities together in wonder, preparation, and remembrance.
For my collaboration I will host Site: Yizkor, a performance that creates space for mourning and remembrance through participatory writing, reading and conversation. Following the model of the Yizkor Book*, participants will write their own Yizkor pages in addition to reading and discussing selections from existing books.
Yizkor* Books are books published by former residents of towns in Europe as remembrances of homes and people lost during the Holocaust.
